Diving Into Ozone Treatment

The Winona Family YMCA is located in southeast Minnesota, in a town that is home to approximately 27,000 residents. The 4,300-member athletic center is spread across 78,000 sq ft and hosts programs and classes in badminton, basketball, tennis, aquatics and more.

Built in 1951, the original indoor pool at the Winona YMCA measures 20 by 60 yd. When a new, larger pool was built, the smaller pool became the YMCA’s warm-water pool, used for toddler and senior citizen classes, as well as therapeutic activities.

Achieving Clean Water in the Amazon

In June 2012, a group of George Mason University (GMU) students and faculty traveled to the Amazon jungle to help an indigenous group of roughly 400 people called the Maijuna complete a water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) project. The project included teaching proper toothbrushing, hygiene and handwashing, and building bio-slowsand filters (biosand filters) for each household.

Clean Water Close to Home

The water treatment industry seems to be full of new ideas about how to treat water in innovative ways. NPR reported that UNICEF is promoting a machine developed by Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology and HVR that turns sweat into drinking water by filtering the drippings squeezed from clothes. In answer to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Reinvent the Toilet” competition, researchers at Duke have developed a new toilet, complete with a self-contained waste recycling system, that transforms wastewater into drinking water.
