How clean water in remote communities could be cheap and easy

CTV reported on UBC Civil Engineering researchers who have created a system that uses bacteria and gravity to turn grey water into drinking water.

Professor Pierre Bérubé, who led the project, said the technology removes the need for chemicals and complex mechanical systems that make water treatment systems difficult to maintain in small, remote communities.

A similar story appeared on CBC, EurekAlert! Science News, CTV, and Huffington Post UK.
