Deliberate Efforts have been made for rural & slum areas to get reliable water sources over time by Government, Non-Governmental Organizations and Private Partnerships within the affected communities.
Our attention at Xpress Voices overtime has been redirected to the quality of the water the population is drawing from these water sources such as boreholes & Spring wells.
Boreholes and Wells draw water from the Ground water table and yet thousands of pit latrines are dug deep into the water table. it means the wastes from latrines contaminate water. There are confessions of feacal matter dropping off some of these boreholes and wells.
iLLUSTRATION OF HOW LATRINES CONTAMINATE WATER
This water has long been a source of waterborne Diseases such as Typhoid, Dysentry, Meningitis, Bilharzia, Cholera etc. The return of heavy rains and flooding always worsen the situation as wall the waste [including animals] on land is washed into open wells.
Yinnovate solution To provide Safe Clean water
Our team has developed solar powered water purification systems. The systems utilize UV light to kill the major categories of germs found in water namely bilharzia, protozoans, Amoeba, E.coli, bacteria etc. Our methods prevent the use of hazardous costly chemicals such as chlorine for water treatment. The scalability of our system is achieved by its ability to be deployed to sterilize community water sources such as boreholes and spring wells.
