Peru’s Fog Water

One neighborhood in Lima, Peru has found an ingenious solution to their water shortage.

Spread out across the top of a hill, nets are coming to the aid of one neighborhood in Lima, Peru.  In response to a shortage of potable water and plumbing, a German NGO, Alimon, has offered this solution.  These nets, both simple and slightly absurd, take advantage of the city’s foggy disposition to capture water.  One net costs roughly $800 and those nearby benefit from up to 60 liters of water every night to use for drinking, cooking, bathing, and farming.  Though this implementation is obviously very site specific, it is encouraging to see sustainable solutions to water crises, especially in an affordable, feasible form.
