AguaClara is a multi-disciplinary program at Cornell University that designs sustainable water treatment systems committed to long-term environmental, social, and economic sustainability. Our gravity-powered, electricity-free technology is scalable to fit the needs of communities with populations between 1500 and 25,000. Water treatment plants built using AguaClara technologies currently provide clean water to approximately 50,000 people.
