Abstract

This project focuses on developing a sustainable and economical water filter for use in developing countries, particularly Haiti. After investigating various methods of purification, it was determined that a combination of ultraviolet treatment and carbon filtration was the most promising approach. A prototype of the design was developed; looking forward partnerships with non profit organizations are the best method of implementation.
