Nurture Reserve / water collection/filter

Nurture Reserve
Nurture Reserve

Developing countries around the world experience large amounts of rainfall during a season, but also severe drought in another. Despite vast amounts of rainfall and ground reserves, they continue to go without suitable drinking water. The Nurture Reserve utilizes existing sources to provide a safe, sustainable, close to home water source. With inserts to catch debris found in ground reserves, and a hollow fibre membrane filter to remove 99.999% of bacteria, up to 1’000 gallons of water can be filtered. The Nurture Reserve will collect, filter and store rainfall during rainy seasons, and water collected from ground reserves during dry seasons.
