Title: Water Capture and Filtration System: A Replicable Design Concept for Arid Rural Communities
University of Florida students have designed a low-tech, low-cost filtration system for an open pool reservoir in western Africa. The students are now measuring the efficacy of the design by using the amount of water collected during the first year and the length of time residents are able to survive off of the collected water as guides.
