Collecting water from fog

collector1.jpg

The fog collector, a 20 x 40 foot structure resembling a large volleyball net, is constructed of polypropylene mesh that is suspended between two upright supports. It collects clean water from thick mountain fog and channels it into storage tanks, which the community then accesses through an outdoor tap. These collectors are consistently producing an astonishing volume of water – more than 500 litres every 24 hours.
