Water sanitation station

The Northeast High School InvenTeam invented a portable, bicycle-powered emergency water filtration station that uses cloth filtration and an ozone sanitation sanitizer to eliminate pathogens like Vibrio cholerae and E. coli from contaminated water. The invention provides 20-30 individuals with 4 L of drinking water and enough bathing water for five people in a 15 hr period. The collapsible and transportable design weighs 125 lb and takes 30 min to an hour for assembly and disassembly. If mass-produced, the invention will cost $700.
