|Project Summary||Project Information|
Water purification systems allow for the removal of unwanted constituents within a sample of water. Unwanted constituents include suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses, fungi, etc., which make water unsafe for human consumption. Water is validated for human consumption based on international and governmental standards, which define acceptable levels of contaminant concentrations. Conventional inexpensive water purification systems are generally either importable, fragile, non-robust, and/or non-sustainable.
The goals of this project are to leverage existing inexpensive water purification techniques to produce a cost-efficient, portable, and durable system that can produce purified water from standing surface water with variable contaminants. This purification system will be designed for use in impoverished regions with little to no modern, industrialized, infrastructure; therefore this system will be made to be easily operable, and will utilize solar power. The expected outcome of this project is a functional prototype with a study validating the purity of resulting water.
