WATER, JUSTICE & SUSTAINABILITY IN RURAL GUANAJUATO
Dylan Terrell TEDX San Miguel

The Independence Aquifer in central Mexico is in a permanent state of decline and contaminated with toxic levels of arsenic and fluoride...

CERAMIC WATER FILTERS

Produced and proven by Caminos de Agua, these low-cost biological filters surpass World Health Organization and USEPA water quality standards and currently provide thousands of people with safe drinking water throughout the Independence watershed.  Current expansion of the filters in Mexico City and southern Mexico is underway.

RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEMS 

The community-led construction of 12,000L ferrocement rainwater cisterns - combined with  Caminos' unique design that integrates low-cost first flush diverters, leaf filters, and are combined with our ceramic water filters - creates a sustainable source of safe & healthy water for local communities.
