WATER FILTRATION
  • Tested water for turbidity, iron, lead, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, pH, conductivity, ammonia, residual chlorine, chloride, sulfate, fluoride, aluminum, copper, manganese to determine it is safe to drink. Tests chosen based on the WHO Rapid Assessment of Water Quality Testing

  • Used GIS to monitor chlorine levels of water

  • Compared filtered water to river water and city water

  • Dissected the UF filter in order to determine the cause of failure

  • Implemented a rapid sand filter to prolong life of UF filter
