EPA Grant Number: SU835313
Title: Community-Level Water Disinfection Technology for Dhaka, Bangladesh Treatment

Diarrhea is a major cause of death of young children in developing countries. The microorganisms that cause the disease often enter water distribution systems through broken pipes. Stanford University students, working in Bangladesh, are designing low-cost devices that are placed at points in a distribution system that deliver water to small groups of homes. Called a chlorinator, the device automatically disinfects water with chlorine before it flows into homes. Each device will help to provide clean water to approximately 10-50 households without relying on electricity or moving parts.
