Organic Purify Blocks-Water and sanitation for citizens
Organic Purify Blocks-Water and sanitation for citizens

In order to purify water in small and crowded cities, this project attempts to accelerate the natural ecological operating system. Wetland plants that can filter water are placed in modular blocks. The dirty river water will be pumped to the top by wheels. Organic Purify Blocks have multiple levels. The organic matter in the water will be purified and filtered. The filtered river water forms a waterfall which brings coolness and alleviates the problem of eutrophication. At the same time, the system is also an urban Stepping Stone providing habitat for the birds and animals living on the riverbank.
