Dirty Water Project
Civil, chemical and environmental engineers work together to make existing water treatment systems better, or to develop new water treatment systems. Some engineers design state-of-the-art seawater treatment system technologies that take water from the ocean and process it cost-effectively for safe domestic use.  In this activity, students investigate different methods (aeration and filtering) for removing pollutants from water. They will design and build their own water filters.
