It's all about WaterThis century is all about water. From population pressures to
global warming, water availability and quality will decide the fate of
many nations and regions. Who has it, how is it used, is it safe, can
we afford to waste it? All of these issues will come to a head this
century. And conventional approaches are not up to the task. One size,
or technique, does most definitely not fit all. What works in developed
countries where capital, availability of materials and expertise are
plentiful, fails in countries with none of those things.
We are dedicated to two principles:
Find the best solution for the place and people
Ocham’s razor- the simplest solution is always the best.
We provide: design services, training, project review, research. Intermediate technologies are a specialty of ours- those technologies that allow developing countries and peoples to experience the quality of water that is expected in developed countries, without the cost or complications.

requirments, chemical use, and use of disposable or replaceable
elements- an important consideration in developing countries where
ongoing funding, reliable power, and supply chain logistics are always
questionable. click on this link to see how you can participate, and get a book for ten bucks.|
