I Did It: Make Water from Air

heather-for-isf

Five years ago when I started working for EcoloBlue, I had no concept of what an atmospheric water generator (AWG) was. Make water from air? What does that mean?

Since that time, I have been able to learn the technology itself, and more about EcoloBlue’s products and solutions. I’ve been striving to educate others from the highest level corporations and media, to our local Chamber of Commerce and elementary school. It’s a very forward-thinking and crucial solution for the planet today.

Water contamination is running rampant globally, and every day you hear chatter about what people think should be done about the problem. Well, the problem is too much chatter and not enough action. There are solutions at your fingertips.

EcoloBlue manufactures AWGs that can produce water on a small scale for your home or office, on a very large scale for entire communities, and everything in between. By condensing the moisture in the air, the water is collected and processed through an impressive filtration process. This leaves you with 99.9% pure water, for whatever your needs may be.

In the last few months, I have been working on shipping and coordinating a large donation of machines to the residents of Flint, Michigan, on behalf of EcoloBlue. I am proud to be part of a company that started under the premise of trying to solve the world’s global water problems, as well as reduce plastic bottle waste in the process. Then, to see the company come full circle, and to act on these initial philanthropic principals, makes me even prouder.

If you would like to learn more about EcoloBlue, please visit their Website or Blog.

January 13 update from Flint Water Response Team

flintemail-wednesdayjan13_original

This daily update is being issued in order to provide the latest information regarding actions and available resources.

Governor Snyder has requested support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate with other federal agencies to provide resources to Flint as we work on short-term and long-term solutions for residents. This request will identify federal agencies that have programs, authorities, and/or technical expertise that could help in the ongoing response and recovery efforts in Flint. Such federal agencies may include the Department of Health and Human Services, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Army Corps of Engineers.

In addition to requesting support from FEMA, the Governor has activated the Michigan National Guard to help our local volunteers distribute supplies at the five water resource sites. If you need free bottles of water, water filters, replacement cartridges, or water testing kits, please visit one of these sites. CLICK HERE TO FIND A LIST OF THE WATER RESOURCE SITES.

A Public Service Announcement was also released in a priority effort to continue providing free water resources to all Flint residents. Please share this PSA on social media to help us spread the word.

Today, Governor Snyder was joined by Director Nick Lyon from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director Mike Zimmer, and Michigan Chief Medical Executive Dr. Eden Wells at a press conference in Detroit.

During the press conference, in an abundance of caution and full transparency, officials released information regarding a spike in cases of Legionella in Genesee County. The documented increase occurred in 2014 and 2015.

Dr. Wells noted that proper authorities, including the Environmental Protection Agency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are working together to further investigate the spike and will issue full reporting in the near future.

While the cause of the increase in Legionella is being reviewed, Dr. Eden Wells does not advise any change in current procedures being recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services. Residents should continue using clean water resources.

California Mandatory Water Restrictions

One way you can assist with the drought, is to make your own water from the air. The more you make, the less you are depleting from the State. Make your own water, be self-reliant, and sleep easy knowing that you are being a part of the solution, and not part of the problems. We have solutions for your home, office, community, corporation, or even your whole town.

This drought does not just extend to the borders of California, so think about it if you are in a drought stricken state or country.
