HTI HydoPack: Clean Water for Disaster Relief The HydroPack Is Like a Capri Sun Pouch for Disaster Relief
For World Water Day: Meet the Capri Sun pouch you simply drop in a mud puddle or contaminated river to get clean, fortified water.
Today is World Water Day. This year's theme is "Water for Cities." Yes, you can still attend all manner of walks, photo contests, screenings, and other events supporting global access to clean water. We've highlighted some noble projects for delivering drinking water in the past, but today we bring you you news of a new technology designed especially for disasters.
The HTI HydroPack is like an empty Capri Sun pouch with powdered nutrients inside. But it's really a filter you can drop in any water source—a swimming pool, a mud puddle, a contaminated aquifer—and eight to twelve hours later the pack has filled itself with potable, fortified water.
