Designing a Water Filtration Device to Remove Chemical and Biological Contamination in Mandi District Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Government reports over multiple years in Mandi District have revealed high levels of water contamination in many villages that may put residents at risk of negative health effects. This contamination can result from poor sanitation, an expanding industrial sector, and agricultural practices. Our goal was to create a small-scale filtration technology to address the drinking water needs of residents living in affected communities. To realize the goal, we assessed drinking water perceptions, behaviors, and water quality in the Sundernagar area of Mandi District. We designed a filtration device to address two concerns: iron and biological contamination. We designed and tested a filter prototype that can be further tested, refined, and potentially implemented in this region.
