OUR MISSION
We're a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity made up of civil engineers and planners. We design clean drinking water systems that prevent waterborne diseases in developing countries around the world.

Providing clean drinking water is what we have been trained for as civil engineers and planners. We have decades of experience in cleaning contaminated drinking water and stopping pollution from flowing to our water sources here in the United States. Now we are putting this expertise to work in developing countries where it is needed the most.

We work with partners in developing countries, to design and construct drinking water systems. With our civil engineering / land use planning background we approach the problem with state of the art designs and with realistic construction methods that can be easily implemented in the host country:

Step 1: For immediate problems we provide filtering systems that are purposely designed and constructed to be simple. They are made from local materials so local people, who need filtering systems the most, can reproduce these filters on their own.

Step 2: We install fresh water wells with hand pumps for entire communities, so no one has to go without clean water.

Step 3: We investigate the causes of waterway pollution, which could be from industrial sources or local farms and ranches. Once we locate where the pollution is coming from, we design low cost water treatment systems that are simple to build and effective. When toxic pollution flowing to local waterways is stopped, entire communities will benefit with clean rivers, lakes and streams. The health of everyone connected to these waterways improves.

Our goal is to bring clean, safe drinking water to low income areas. The job is big and we need your help! People in developing countries need strong advocates who are willing to work hard to help spread awareness of the water crisis. Learn how you can be the voice of people who live on less than a dollar a day. Be a Clean Water Advocate
