Update of Design and Best Practices of an Intermittently Operated Slow Sand Filter - ISSF

In 2011 Samaritan’s purse, in Cambodia, utilized slow sand filtration and BSF principles to develop a filter appropriate for institutional scale use, such as that of schools. In 2012 a standard design was developed and subsequently a performance study was conducted in 2014 affirming the efficacy of the design principles in E.coli removal. Since then, Samaritan’s purse has continued to adapt the standard design in multiple contexts in 8 countries around the world to address biological contamination. In January 2017, Samaritan’s Purse in partnership with CAWST, published “Technical Manual: Intermittently Operated Slow Sand Filtration (iSSF) System” to be used by implementers wanting to use the design. Samaritan’s Purse has surveyed its field staff to provide updated insight on field adaptations of the technology and in this session will reintroduce basic design principles as alignment with the published manual as well as applicable insight gleaned since the January 2016 webinar hosted by CAWST.

Ecofiltro - Selling Water Filters in Mexico and Central America: success reached by failing fast!

Ecofiltro is a social enterprise that set a goal in 2010 of reaching 1 million families in rural Guatemala with a clean water solution by the year 2020. A cross subsidy strategy was setup whereby urban filters were used to subsidize rural sales. From the beginning, the rural poor were viewed as potential customers as opposed to objects of pity. A low price point was set to make the water filters very attractive by having a 3 month or less payback. The strategy started with a focus on community entrepreneurs as primary sales agents and has evolved to making schools in the countryside the main channel to selling filters to parents of school children. Financing models were setup and tweaked and today Ecofiltro has reached over 250,000 paying customers in rural Guatemala. The model is now being exported to Mexico and the rest of Central America.

Biochar Adsorbent for Control of Synthetic Organic Contaminants in Affordable Decentralized Water Treatment

The public health consequences of chemical exposure are now comparable to or greater than those of widespread infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. However, despite large human and economic costs, chemical pollution of the environment and water sources has been overlooked in the WASH development agenda. Chemical pollution control currently receives less than 0.5% of global development spending. Biomass char (biochar) has shown promise as a low-cost adsorbent for uptake of SOCs from drinking water that can be generated using local resources in developing communities.

The Sand in Biosand - Getting to the Heart of the Biosand Filter - Webinar

The most important part of the biosand filter is the filter sand. It is the sand that does the actual work of removing dangerous pathogens from the water. Biosand filters can come in all shapes and sizes, with filter containers successfully being made from concrete, plastic, PVC, ferrocement, sheet metal, and other materials. However, if the sand is not right, the filter will not work. This webinar goes over the most important aspects about filter sand, reviews the latest research, and addresses common questions and challenges people run into in their projects.
