1. HEARTLAND VILLAGE OF GRASS VALLEY- April 2016
Heartland is an ecological community located in Grass Valley, California. They requested and collaborated with WaterNow to install a regenerative water system with structured water to their picturesque land. WaterNow installed structured water units, storage tanks, and UV light disinfection to bring clean activated pure water to the community. Their testimonial says it all from the founder Anders G. – “We are so excited, the Water tastes epic, our system is so much better and is greatly enhanced in quality, thank you!”
2. STANDING ROCK, LAKOTA TRIBE OF NORTH DAKOTA- May- July 2016
Hauled from long distances, plastic water bottles were the sole source of hydration for the First Nations of North Dakota. This situation was due to the remote area, drought for traditional water sources such as lakes and rivers, and pollution from oil pipelines. During the direct-action initiatives taking place, the care keeper of Sacred Stone Camp called on WaterNow to help re-create clean water systems for the land, the inhabitants and its many hundreds of visitors.
WaterNow raised approximately $12,500 for Standing Rock reservation, which went to providing and installing water filter units such as UV for sterilization, and restructuring units, transportation of material, and green energy systems such as wind turbine and mobile batteries for power and WIFI boosts. The project was completed within a 2 month timeframe, and the Tribe and visitors send reports back of gratitude and success.
3. INDIGENOUS HUNI KUIN VILLAGE OF THE AMAZON – Nov- Dec. 2016
The women and children of the Huni Kuin (Kaxinawa) Village in the Brazilian Amazon routinely made a three -day journey to collect and carry water back to their homes, often on foot. They go without pure water access due to commercial mining, industrial pollution, and logging production upstream which taints the flowing Amazon basin rivers. The only support offered from the
WaterNow raised $7k for the Huni Kuin tribe which went to state-of the art water filter systems (restructuring and 7 stage purification), solar, water storage tanks, rainwater catchment, travel, tools to dig their well deeper, submersible pump and a water drinking station. We have kept in touch and heard their system is still functioning well.
4. GREEN SCHOOL OF BALI- April-May 2017
WaterNow journeyed to Bali, Indonesia to present an educational water workshop and consult on Water Turbine technology at The Green School Bali in collaboration with the Bali Water Protection Program (IDEP). We aligned to provide support for their program of building rehabilitated wells to stop saltwater intrusion.
WaterNow supported the Green School, an internationally renowned holistic educational institute that is 100% green energy and water sustainable. We took action by installing a restructuring water unit for their kitchen Kulu farm, the water system serves 450 children and teachers every year. We also advised them on a sustainable PV solar and river turbine interface, which uses water vortex technology and the natural river to convert water energy into hydro-power, a clean and green energy alternative. The cooperative, teachers, and children attended a WaterNow demonstration and educational workshop which was well received.
5. LAKE BACALAR, MEXICO- Dec. 2017
In December of 2017, WaterNow responded to a call from the state of Quintana Roo Mexico, located on the eastern part of the Yucatán Peninsula in the city of Bacalar. In 2015 Mexico’s environmental protection agency issued an “urgent” call for local authorities to stop sewage and waste discharge into the fresh-water lake of Bacalar. In response to this crisis, WaterNow installed a 3-stage water purification system and UV filter system for bacteria and helped the health of the participants gathering at the lake. The gathering was called ‘Llamado del Agua’ which translates to Call of the Water.
6. RHODOPE MOUNTAINS, BULGARIA- June 2018
WaterNow responded to a call from the organizers to have clean water at ‘Meadows in the Mountains’; a Conscious Art & Film Festival (MITM) . This gathering brings crowds of over 3,000 individuals annually and during the previous year’s festival hundreds of people fell ill due to bacteria and parasites coming from the water tanks. WaterNow triaged the situation and installed a UV water filter, and a 3-stage purification system along with water hydration stations. The sustainable system was well received and saved in plastic consumption, hauling water, and not to mention the chemical free water that received many accolades and will prevent future outbreaks.
The organizer Benjamin S: “We saved thousands of single use plastics! Participants were well hydrated and thankful for the water system, keep up the great work!”
7. CLEAN WATER INITIATIVE FOR DINÈ, WHEATFIELDS COMMUNITY- MARCH 2019
In this Navajo (Diné) Nation community in Wheatfields Lake, Arizona, approximately 1000 people experience poor quality drinking water. There’s an abundance of water rights and a rich cultural history, yet a lack of water flow which has caused lake reservoirs to dry up. Contaminants have resulted in illnesses that have been reported in the community. Help us help this strong, beautiful community with clean drinking water!
Phase I Objectives Completed
– Partnered with Little Big Medicine & Tap the Flow 24
for a new clean water via filtration system.
– Installed Rainwater catchment system
– New water station, piping, and plumbing to homes.
– Educate the local community on sustaining and maintaining the system
– Number of homes with water access increased due to our implemented solutions.
– Thousands of gallons of clean water consumed or used in each home.
– Collected feedback from community members based on water quality and health
WaterNow raised $2,500 to purchase rainwater catchment tanks, piping, water filters and materials. We will employ local labor and source local materials. We’ve met with President of Little Big Medicine Inc., Danny John and his wife Levina John on numerous occasions at their land in Arizona, USA. They feel this project will greatly enhance well-being, health, and morale of the community for generations to come.
8. Habitat For Humanity Egypt Partnership– September 2019- December 2019
WaterNow responded to a call from the Director of Habitat For Humanity Egypt (HFHE) , a part of Habitat for Humanity International. ‘Habitat Egypt started work in 1989, As a result of the efforts made over 30 years, Habitat Egypt Has Helped 38,000 families in 40 communities to date to Have a decent, simple, healthy and affordable houses, get access to water, and sanitation. The target beneficiaries are people with low income, vulnerable and marginalized groups.’
WaterNow met with HFHE; and partnered to provide filters for much needed clean water for their housing projects in-progress. The water coming from the majestic Nile River, is now polluted and can’t be used for drinking as it used to do in the past generations. Due to drought over the past years, rainwater catchment is not feasible, therefore water filtration is the top candidate for widespread clean water usage, so that plastic water bottles can be displaced as the only alternative – since it causes environmental damage and is not sustainable. We plan to go back for a Phase 2 in 2021, and supply hundreds more filters for regenerative water and housing systems.
