Fog Water Project
FogQuest


“Fog collectors are inexpensive, passive devices that each produce 200 to 600 liters of fresh water a day by collecting the tiny wind blown water droplets present in fog. Arrays of collectors produce an average of 5,000 to 15,000 liters of water per day. The low-technology fog collectors are well suited to providing water to villages in the dry mountainous parts of developing countries. The technology is sustainable, environmentally friendly, and can be cared for and expanded upon by the community members.”

  • Many years ago there was an article in Desert Magazine about harvesting water from the atmosphere on the western coast of Australia by building a hill of hollow tiles that would allow the air to circulate through the hill cooling the air and condensing water vapor into water which would beprotected from evaporation by the tile hill. They projected enough water to irrigate a small farm.
