A terrifying reality is becoming more and more apparent as we move into the new year: water shortages are becoming more common. People all across the world are finding that access to clean and safe drinking water is becoming less and less likely, and as water shortages continue, that number is expected to rise. However, there are some ways technologies that we can look at that can help combat it.

Water location technologies

This is a huge game-changer when it comes to water technology, as it allows us to tap into the wealth of groundwater that can be under the surface. When looking at this, a combination of Geographic Information has allowed us to find Deep Seated Water, a wealth of water that can be used to help countries around the world with little to no access to clean and safe water to drink.

Deep Seated Water™ is high-quality groundwater that’s found in deep aquifers that are normally located below shallow aquifers. Using the deeper aquifers means that when the water is found, they’re less likely to be affected by the region’s hydrological cycles. Normally, they’re incredibly difficult to find. However, with today’s advanced technology, finding these deep seated waters can be done with almost 100% certainty. 


Not everyone has the ability to make sure the water they’re drinking is clean and filtered. But what if they did? This company uses a microfiltration device to remove over 99.9% of bacteria in water. It aims to filter 264 gallons of water to 0.2 microns, and not only that, with every straw purchased, LifeStraw provides safe water to a child for an entire school year. This way it benefits everyone. You consume cleaner water, and also help a water-tresed community.

SE200 Community Chlorine Maker

Contamination is one of the biggest problems in our water crisis today. This technology was designed with the idea of keeping people in charge of their water purification system. Using just a 12-volt battery and salt, this process known as electrolysis uses water, salt, and electricity to produce a chlorine that can kill bacteria in the water. This technology was made so easy, school-age children can do it!

OrbSys Shower

This shower, developed by Orbital Systems, is a technology that can collect your shower water, purify it, and reuse it. This can be essential in areas where freshwater itself is scarce. This OrbSys Shower can save almost 90% of water used when showering. A regular shower uses around 150 liters of water in a 10 minute shower, and the OrbSys Shower uses 5 liters. 

These are just a few of the many ways that you can ensure that you always have clean water with you wherever you go.
