Watts, in partnership with Planet Water, recently sponsored the installation of two water filtration systems (AquaTowers) to provide clean drinking water to residents in remote areas of Puerto Rico.
One of the projects is located in the San Lorenzo sector, which is home to a series of communities located along the largest, and only, roadside bridge in the area. In the wake of the hurricane, this bridge completely collapsed and floated away, leaving the communities stranded for weeks, as they had no way of leaving without the bridge.
Recently, a makeshift road was built on the river. One of our AquaTowers was deployed along this new road, which is the only way in or out for the community, so now residents have access to clean water.
