The Disaster Water Shield has been developed to provide clean drinking water to disaster affected populations.
The Disaster Water Shield has been developed to provide clean drinking water to disaster affected populations. It was developed by Infinitum Humanitarian Systems, IHS as a rapidly transportable, low-power water purification system and can use water from virtually any non-salt source – river, lake, pond, rice paddy, cistern, town source, or agricultural ditch.
This modular system can be configured to clean and store between 800 gallons and 4,000 gallons of purified drinking water every 24 hours. The purification process reduces biologics like viruses and bacteria, organic molecules like pesticides, fertilizers, and fuels, and reduces heavy metals like arsenic, lead, and mercury.
