Schuylerville student performs water work

ONEONTA — Rainey Cerqua of Schuylerville was one of 20 environmental sustainability students from SUNY Oneonta recently returned from a summer international field course called “Water and Environment of Guatemala.” The course brought students to Guatemala for two weeks, where they took water samples and analyzed water quality data from Lake Atitlan and the surrounding drainage basin. The course is led by Associate Professor of Geography and Environmental Sciences Tracy Allen.

Based on their observations, interactions with local residents, and data collection, students worked to identify sustainable solutions to the area’s water resources problems. Students were also able to learn about agriculture while touring a coffee plantation and, later, take in the area’s natural wonders, including the Pacaya volcano, which is active.

The students went into a Guatemalan elementary school to teach children about the lake and water quality, and they also installed water filtration systems into some of the area homes.
