"Combining knowledge of local circumstances with modern science and technology is a crucial prerequisite for developing more efficient, sustainable infrastructure."
|room||Are constructed with local labor, using locally-available materials.||settings||Use generic supplies rather than specialized components.|
|rotate_90_degrees_ccw||Minimize use of valves and moving parts to reduce costs.||attach_money||Are optimized for low-cost and high-performance.|
|flash_off||Operate without the use of electricity.||build||Are easy to construct by using low-precision construction techniques.|
|layers||Have removable parts for inspection and maintenance.||message||Provide operators with feedback for every step of the treatment process.|
|data_usage||Have a direct-reading indicator of plant flow rate.||input||Use directly-set chemical dosages with a control point close to the flocculator.|
|functions||Are maintainable by one person, without needing to do math.||visibility||Have no sealed reactors, meaning unit processes are observable.|
|home||Are enclosed in a building, protected from the sun and rain.||person||Are sized so that tanks are accessible by a human for inspection.|
