Nirapadma: The Dhaka Water Project
As part of Stanford Engineers for a Sustainable World, I worked with a team of undergraduate, and graduate students and faculty to build and design initial prototypes for a chlorine-based water purification system. This project was being developed for the slums in Dhaka, Bangladesh in attempts to provide safer and more reliable water access to places lacking basic infrastructure.
Our team also assessed barriers and cultural implications to a community-based implementation approach. These factors affected design in considering who and how the system would be regulated, repaired, monitored etc.
