Puerto Rico


The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico is an organization that focuses on the historical and ecological preservation of Puerto Rico. It owns the site of the Antiguo Acueducto de San Juan, which contains a mechanical water filtration system. This team of four WPI students created a design of a working physical model of the system, as well as exhibit displays that convey the history of the site, the function of the mechanical water filtration system, and the importance of water conservation.
