Make Water from Lake Victoria Safe to Drink!

Make Water from Lake Victoria Safe to Drink!

This Challenge requires a design for an easy-to-use method that purifies water from Lake Victoria so that it is safe to drink. The waters of the Lake contain bacteria, viruses, and parasites, algae and other pollutants that cause enteric disease and death, especially amongst children under 5 years old.

Sunlight/UV-light dose indicator

Sunlight/UV-light dose indicator

The Challenge requires an indicator that gives a visual sign of water having been exposed to a sufficient dose of sunlight or UV-light for disinfection. Diarrhea is the second biggest cause of deaths of children under five years of age worldwide: every year, which often is caused by the consumption of water contaminated with micro-organisms.

Design of a Low Cost Rainwater Harvesting Storage Tank in a Wetland Region

Design of a Low Cost Rainwater Harvesting Storage Tank in a Wetland Region

This Challenge requires a rainwater harvesting storage tank for use in a wetland Region in India. Eighty percent of the 700,000 citizens of Kuttanad, a region in the coastal state of Kerala,, have no access to clean water. This water scarcity results in over 20,000 cases of water related disease each year, millions of rupees in medical costs, and hours of physical labor spent collecting contaminated water daily by women and children.

Water Treatment combining solar radiation with nano-sized titanium oxide

Water Treatment combining solar radiation with nano-sized titanium oxide

This challenge is looking for an improved water tank to better use titanium oxide nanoparticles to sterilize drinking water. This solution will enable sustainable alternatives for water supply systems in terms of maintenance and operation in rural areas. This treatment system will decrease illness amongst several families who live in the isolated highlands of Peru. Chronic malnutrition amongst children will also be decreased due to the access to safe water - treated by a nanotechnology prototype.
