Sanitation Issue at the David Center Orphanage

There is a sanitation problem at the David Center Orphanage.  The problem is standing sewage on the top of the ground during certain periods of the year.
When I was in Cambodia last year, Dr. Brian Kalsbeek, Executive Director for TransformAsia, learned that I was a water and wastewater engineer.  (I have my own business.)  He asked for my assistance in solving this sanitation problem.  So, when I go to Cambodia in December one of my tasks is to investigate this problem.  I will gather information about the problem and the existing conditions at the site.  If I am not able to determine the solution while I am there, I will bring the information back with me to the USA to develop a solution to the problem.
There are two people who have offered to assist me in looking into this problem.  They are Harry Luzius and Dr. Loudon.  Together the three of us make the 'Sanitation Team.'

Here is some information on the Sanitation Team

D. Harry Luzius, PE
Harry is a registered professional engineer in Michigan.  Harry has been on several missions trips to orphanages in eastern Ukraine, and has expressed a desire to be of assistance in helping to resolve the sanitation problems at the David Center Orphanage.  Harry has a Bachelor of Science degree from the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, and has more than 30 years of experience in the design and construction of water and wastewater systems.  Harry has specialized expertise in advanced treatment for on-site wastewater systems, design of small community sewer systems, consulting with county and state officials to evaluate soils and obtain site approval, and securing permits to construct.  Harry attends The Jordan, a non-denominational church located in Traverse City, Michigan.  

Dr. Ted Loudon, Ph. D., PE
Dr. Loudon is Professor Emeritus, Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.  He is also a registered professional engineer.  Dr. Loudon has many years’ experience in the research, development, design, and testing of various types of onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems.  He is a personal friend of Harry Luzius, who invited him to join our Team.  Dr. Loudon accepted and will offer assistance to Kurt and Harry as time allows.  Dr. Loudon has experience with wastewater treatment worldwide and has applied his knowledge to a wide variety of systems all over the world.  His third world experience will be invaluable to the Team.
