Title: UV-Tube Design Concept for Sustainable, Point-of-Use Water Disinfection
Can UV-tubes be used successfully in developing countries to treat drinking water at the point of use - the household tap or neighborhood well?
P3 students are helping to disinfect drinking water at the point of use-the household tap or neighborhood well. This project is testing two designs in the field using ultraviolet tubes. The researchers are performing monthly biological tests; conducting user preference, health, and willingness to pay surveys; and collecting user feedback on the designs.
