The Bolivia Project

The Safe Water International (SWI) Bolivia demonstration project seeks to test an inexpensive water treatment option for families that live in water scarcity areas. Typically, such areas have an abundance of sunlight, yet available water sources become increasingly polluted by agricultural, animal, and human wastes during the dry months of the year. The mission of SWI is to identify and demonstrate solar pasteurizing drinking water treatment systems which can effectively and economically serve households and neighborhoods in the poor rural regions of Bolivia.
