EOS International’s water purification technology is a low-cost, low-maintenance solution that attaches to any rural community’s water tank and inactivates pathogens in water systems by releasing a controlled dosage of chlorine. One system can provide safe drinking water for up to 1,000 community members and requires no electricity to use.
EOS provides rural families in Central America with access to cost-effective safe drinking water solutions at the community level. Through EOS’ technology implementation, education, and monitoring, our team can ensure that communities have safe drinking water continually, allowing children to stay in school, parents to continue working, and communities to thrive.
EOS’ comprehensive model provides safe drinking water to over 530,000 people and includes the support of the ministry of health and local partners. This three-step model includes water quality testing and analysis to assess contaminations in the community water source, community water treatment and education to treat the contamination, and an ongoing chlorine tablet distribution providing a sustainable supply chain. Our team provides ongoing technical assistance, training, evaluation, and chlorine tablet distribution to all 1,300 rural communities through an established network of 51 chlorine distribution centers. EOS has identified entrepreneurs and initiated these chlorine distribution centers to provide a financially sustainable supply chain of chlorine tablets, while also an opportunity for entrepreneurs to generate up to $150 per month while supporting clean water. All solutions are locally-operated and require co-financing from all involved and demonstrates that for just pennies a day-per person, we could dramatically reduce the incidence of waterborne disease and save lives.
