Warka Water – check out this sustainable water harvesting tower

Warka Water

Humans have a really hard time surviving without water. It’s one of those things, like shelter and food that we REALLY need in order to stay alive but for some reason, we don’t always live in places where there is a lot water. The Warka Water design is a unique water harvesting technique that brings water to places that would be without.

Water harvesting is the act of pulling water out of . . . thin air. Well, not thin, but basically it is a system to pull moisture from the air and give water to the masses. This particular innovation is a sort of tower that collects water through a series of 100% natural occurrences. Namely condensation and evaporation.

The tower creates an area for the water to condense after evaporation. The condensed water drips down into the reservoir below so it can be used for drinking, cooking, etc by the people of the area. The process of evaporation, condensation and collection purifies the water so it is drinkable as soon as it is collected making it more accessible. The towers are built from sustainable materials and since they don’t require electricity, can be set up pretty much anywhere. Warka Water is just one more way the future can be better for people that live in hostile places.
