Alternative Water Treatment Systems (ppt, 16MB), talk given to the Cape Linux Users Group (CLUG). Meant as a handy reference guide with all the cool things I have found relating to the drought so far. The structure includes info about the drought, where we get water from and the risks of each source, a lot about how to treat that water and the issues with each option. I then give a bit of info about how to move on from there, and change the narrative from the drought to how to thrive in water scarcity – also check out AquaSavvy for more info. Please let me know if you’d like more info included, or what cool stuff you have found! It is in ppt form for easy re-use, please be respectful and reference back to the original source.
