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

who are often prefer to use water which they collect
from other, natural, sources.

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.
