A Layman’s Guide to Clean Water provides, in layman’s terms, an explanation of the technology
and the methods commonly used to find, develop, and deliver safe water to families and individuals in need across the globe. Because the problem of poor access to safe water crosses all borders and cultures, the solutions are many and varied. One cannot assume that the solution introduced in one culture will be effective in another. With a general “toolbox” of water development
alternatives, it may be possible offer viable alternative solutions to a particular geographical and cultural setting.
The information in these pages is intended to introduce the reader to a multitude of techniques
and processes available for surveying, finding, and distributing, storing, and treating water in a community and in a household. This website will introduce and explain the inescapable connection between water, sanitation, and hygiene
(WASH). Solutions leading to sustainable development
hinge upon having an understanding of the unique character of each culture and society, appropriate technologies, and the nature of cultural transformation. On this website, you will find organizations that are currently and successfully implementing life-changing water resource development
programs and providing clean water to people around the world. more info >>
