The Water Elephant - A Public Challenge

Change occurs when the public works together to achieve a goal.

What you flush is out of sight and mind for most people. The impact of what goes down the drain is an elephant in the room in dire need of attention.

Over the last 25 years the use of Ultra Violet Disinfection Systems has become common place for keeping bacteria out of rural water supplies.
