Olomana Airlift Pumping System

Saturday July 27, 2019 – GSC was fortunate enough to have a team of experts stop in Guam to do a last-minute workshop. Michael Ogo, Bill Joseph, Rush Faimau, Augustine Maratita from Northern Marianas College CREES (Cooperative Research Extension and Education Services) gave a two (2) hour workshop at the Dededo Farmer’s Coop. The workshop, led by Maratita, involved a hands-on diy assembly of an Olomana Airlift Pumping Station.

This innovative design allows aquaponic farmers to water long distances by utilizing a single water pump/compressor and gravity. Like many other DIY systems, this design is completely customizable to accommodate the size or height of your target watering area. It requires little energy and is fairly simple to build.

We are currently in the process of putting together the video clips of the workshop along with some more examples. In the meantime, enjoy some pictures of the workshop.
