ISSP [2020] : Investigating Potable Water at Doi Tung Schools

Water filtration systems were installed at northern Thailand schools to provide the community with safe drinking water. These filtration systems lacked sufficient maintenance, and the community lacked trust in the water quality. Our team assessed the water quality and filtration systems at three schools to analyze methods of improving the filtered water quality. We recommended establishing a mentorship program for the teachers responsible for maintenance and providing testing methods with the goal of improving the sustainability of water filtration systems.
