Setting Up a Water Purification System


**This is day 1 of  the Winter Emergency First Aid & Disaster Training Week, and can be taken by itself.

Setting up a Water Purification System. Clean drinking water is one of the most critical items to address in an emergency or a disaster. Teams of students will create a micro slow sand filtration unit that eliminates about 99.9% of biological contaminants. In addition, we will teach other types of water filtration and purification and what to think about during an emergency. These purification systems can be used as part of a rainwater collection system or to create a safe viable water source after a disaster with hands-on building of a working model water unit.
