University of Maine does study on SkyBox Filters

Posted Jul 31, 2015

Seven students and teachers from the University of Maine came to La Guajira for one week to implement a study on the SkyBox filter and how it functions in the Wayúu communities.

They visited 12 communities and did tests on 14 SkyBox filters. They also did water sample tests in four additional communities and one river.

The group from the University of Maine collected before and after water samples. They tested for the following:
• E.Coli
• Total Coliforms
• Turbidity
• Conductivity
• TDS
• pH
• Nitrate
• Arsenic
• Fluoride
• Temperature

The final results will help Aguayuda improve the SkyBox filter projects as well as the water quality testing component in the organization.
