The Rotary project, H2OpenDoors, has completed it’s 2nd of seven planned installations of water bottling plants in Puerto Rico. Up to 1000 five gallon bottles can be filled with purified water and sold each and every day by communities hardest hit by the hurricane. The potential income for their social services is in excess of $150,000 from the net profit. These SunSpring-based systems rely on membrane technology to remove bacteria and viruses from their source water.
Members of California Rotary clubs from Santa Cruz, Novato, San Mateo and Redwood City (PenSunrise), along with other friends came to Caguas San Salvador in Puerto Rico this past weekend on a four-day Work Brigade. Starting with an all day restoration of their botanical garden, the water purification system was installed at the end of the trip, with an evening of fun at a San Juan food festival.
