After being hit by the destructive force of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico was left crippled with most of its basic necessities gone. The town of Mariana lost a vast number of crops, a reliable clean source of water on top of much of its infrastructure. After a year, the town is back on its feet, still rebuilding. A source of water for agricultural use is one of the many things the town still requires.
The project problem consists of a solar-powered laundromat located in Mariana, Puerto Rico which produces an excess amount of grey water in an area which is lacking a sufficient supply of water used for their crops. A proposed solution to this problem would to filter the excess grey water from the laundromat and to use this filtered water as a water supply for the crops in the surrounding area.
