First wave of Ecoloblue water generators set up in Flint homes

FLINT (WJRT) – (09/01/16) – It makes purified water from the air and Thursday, the one-of-a-kind machines started going into Flint homes.

A local church is overseeing the donations and says it’s a game changer when it comes to helping families affected by the water crisis.

Shirley Frost is one of the first people in Flint to have the Ecoloblue Atmospheric Water Generator set up in her home.

Some call it the “Energizer Bunny” for water.

It looks similar to a Culligan machine, but it functions much differently.

Frost watched as a crew rolled in the $1,200 equipment that takes moisture out of the air to create clean, drinkable water.

“In this community, so many people are just dead set against ever drinking this water again,” said William Korreck, president of Global Environmental Engineering. “So this is grabbing the water from the air and it’s not connected to any water pipes, so it’s as pure as water as we can provide to the community.”
