Title: Improved Biosand Filters by Enhanced Monitoring and Data Collection Methods

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's team has designed an affordable dissolved oxygen sensor for monitoring biosand filters from any location. Biosand filters are sustainable water treatment devices that are effective only if they are operated correctly. To better understand how people use the filters, the team will gather filter usage data with this sensor. Through testing in rural communities in Nepal and Vietnam, the team hopes to modify the design of the filters to make them more convenient for filter users.
