Biosand Filter Workshop a Success

The 2011 "Implementing the Biosand Filter Workshop" was a great success. Seventeen participants attended the workshop in October, 2011 from as far as Washington State. They studied a variety of safe water technologies, learned about sanitation, discussed appropriate hygiene technologies and actually made a concrete biosand filter. Emilie Sanmartin from CAWST conducted the training. AVFCW expects the next workshop will include water testing and sanitation. Look for more details to come.
