In addition to the EWB project, several students from the chapter are participating in a local project (independent funding). The 2022 EWB Local Project, headed by senior mechanical engineering student Shawn Rantung, is on its second year, with aspirations of finishing up by June of 2023. It was initialized and designed to aid the surrounding community with engineering expertise and non-profit aid. This year's project is focused on the Walla Walla Conservation District and their efforts to repair and reinstall three flowmeters. These flowmeters are used by local farmers to measure the volume of irrigation water as well as other relevant data. This data is then reported to the local government and kept for personal information. The team consists of five engineering students and one computer science major, with one group focusing on the hands-on and mechanical aspect of the flowmeter while the second works on redesigning the software. The team not only aims to aid these local farmers, but to develop a long-lasting relationship with the businesses and organizations around Walla Walla.
