Arsenic Water Filter

The underground water in the genetic belts is not potable due to extremely high arsenic levels. IIT students had found easy, affordable solution—water slowly filtered though rusted nails, could remove the arsenic. The Water filter designed by Vishal Bhushan Jha, brings this technology to the individual villagers.  Easily and cost effectively fabricated locally, the water filter, allows the villagers to store and drink water conveniently while filtering out the unsafe arsenic cheaply and effectively.
