This article assessed the memories of the inhabitants of the quilombo Barrocas on the access and use of clay pit water, relating them to the Social Technologies for coping with drought, as registered in the curriculum of the course of Environmental Engineering at IFBA, the city of Vitoria da Conquista-Bahia. According to the intended objectives, it was possible to verify, in the reminiscences of the inhabitants: in what way the waters were obtained and used; the existence of records of the implications of improper use of this resource; and the existence of social technologies that validate the access and use of the water. The main theorists who founded this research were, Walter Benjamin, Ivor Goodson and Tomaz Tadeu da Silva. Data collection was done through research methods, indirect documentation and extensive direct observation. The fictional work AQuadrado das Águas Perdidas from Elomar Figueira de Mello(1979), contributed with the reflections on this study. Among the final considerations, it was understood that the access to water from clay pits belongs to the past, it is only present in the memories of the interviewees. Moreover, we conclude that the curriculum of the Environmental Engineering course should be practiced in a more humanistic conception, projecting the individual into his social space of experience.
