Development of an antibacterial membrane for purification of floodwater

When floods happen, municipal water distribution systems are damaged and the residents will not have access to clean water. As a result, the will face the risk of health effects from water-born bacteria and pathogens increases. In this project, we proposed a system to purify the water stored frim flood water. This purified water can be used for drinking. This membrane based system can remove the bacteria and pathogens from water. To fabricate the membrane, we will use biopolymers and metals with antibacterial properties.
