• Water Filter

    Environment, Environmental Design

    Many people do not have access to safe drinking water; this may cause them to fall sick to water diseases such as schistosomiasis and diarrhoeal disease. Contaminated water can cause: blindness, lice, swimmer’s ear, and various kinds of chemical poisoning For our high school project, we decided to create our own water filter to combat water diseases. Water Filter Steps:

    1. Take the strainer and wrap the cheesecloth 4 times
    2. Secure with a rubber band.
    3. Cover the strainer with a layer of Activated Carbon
    4. Put a layer of Sand to cover layer of Carbon
    5. Cover the strainer in Rocks
    6. Place the filter over the bucket
    7. Now pour the dirty water over the filter. Do this twice to ensure cleaner water.
    8. To combat bacteria, boil the water. For more information about our water filter and water problems, consult our powerpoint: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1XF9cEiHsYyvdOSfV1clZFLzxSTYGuqvqIOEn2IyoG2c/edit?usp=sharing
