BENEFITING: WATER FOR ME FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 10, 2015
Water for ME is partnering with Aguayuda to test water filtration systems they have installed for indiginous communities in Riohacha, Colombia. Previous filter studies by Water for ME has raised concerns about the sustainability of nano-fiber technology that Aguayuda uses to filter drinking water for contaminants like E. coli. Non-profit Aguayuda, wants to know if their filters are working, so Maine students and scientists from Water for ME will take their Traveling Water Lab to Colombia this July. Testing is the only way to ensure that the efforts by groups like Aguayuda are delivering what one third of the world needs- clean water.
Thank you for your support.
