Planet Water’s AquaTower water filtration solution provides communities, schools, and health centers access to clean, safe drinking water.
Planet Water Foundation has a long history of responding rapidly to the need for clean, safe water in the wake of natural disasters.
Puerto Rico’s water and power infrastructure collapse required a unique solution to the immense need for safe drinking water. AquaTowers provide point-of-need access to clean water in a matter of hours after delivery and can operate without electricity; making these systems perfectly suited to aid in response to the desperate need for drinking water. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, 41 AquaTowers were deployed in areas of need.
The shallow 6.9 magnitude earthquake leveled tens of thousands of homes, mosques, and businesses across Lombok on August 5th taking the lives of 555 people, injuring 1,300, and leaving 353 internally displaced.
When the earthquakes began to shake Lombok, leveling the small communities located on the northern half of the island, Planet Water Foundation and its partners moved quickly to deploy 13 AquaTowers in urgent areas of need. At the same time, Planet Water deployed its very first AquaBlock – Planet Water’s new emergency relief platform designed specifically for providing access to safe drinking water in response to natural disasters.
