This project is focused on water treatment in places

where there isn’t an adequate or available public

water supply. Around 20 % of Slovenes are not

connected to the public supply, and even those

who are often prefer to use water which they collect

from other, natural, sources.

There is a common belief that spring water in

Slovenia is clean, but since a large part of Slovenia

lies on karst grounds, it is difficult to predict the flow

of groundwater and the accompanying pollution.

Cities have their own filter system, which very remote villages

do not have. What kind of water do people drink in such


The location chosen as a pilot area for the project

lies in the Triglav National Park, where, contrary to

public belief, spring waters are quite contaminated.
