Abstract:

This proposal addresses the needs of the more than 25 million Americans dependant on the current supply of water from USEPA non-compliant community or private well sources for day-to-day drinking water. Rural communities have a need for a water purification technology that is superior in performance to currently available technology. Citizens risk disease and/or death when exposed to water that is unsafe to drink. Tap water may be unfit for consumption due to pathogenic organisms and high levels of suspended solids. An individual requires 1.5 to 3 gallons of drinking water per day to prevent dehydration depending on the environmental conditions. The company proposes a water purification technology that will protect citizens against pathogenic organisms, bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts allowing them to take advantage of any locally available water source that may be at risk from these organic contaminants. The proposed technology will protect citizens without the addition of chemical disinfectants. It also provides a means of protecting citizens against natural, military, and terrorist waterborne threats to safety.
