A water from air generator, the GEN-M from Israeli company Watergen, was recently installed in the Hard Rock Community of the Navajo Nation in Arizona, bringing clean drinking water to the water-stressed region.
The Navajo water project is a part of a pilot scheme to solve the serious water crisis for the native American community. Recent studies show that around 10,000 Navajo families lack access to running water.
Watergen’s GEN-M AWG will produce up to 211 gallons of clean drinking water for the community. The effectiveness of the GEN-M will be monitored, and more Watergen devices may be used across the indigenous American territory.
Watergen’s GENius technology draws air into the atmospheric water generator where an air filter removes dust and dirt. The cleaned air then undergoes a heat exchange and cooling process which brings the air to condensation point and creates water. Units simply require an electricity source.
President and CEO of Watergen, Dr Michael Mirilashvili said when he heard of the dire situation in Navajo Nation, he decided that Watergen should deliver its air to water solution to the region.
