Edge Outreach to Demonstrate New Water Filtration System That Will Be Used in Japan, Haiti

by Sheila Ash on March 21, 2011

Edge Outreach, an organization that helps provide safe drinking water for people around the world, will introduce its latest water purification technology Tuesday at the Frazier International History Museum.

The demonstration coincides with the museum’s “Water Works” exhibit, which highlights the Louisville Water Company’s history.

Edge Executive Director Mark Hogg says the new technology allows water to be pumped, purified and collected in a storage tank all in one motion. It’s being used in Haiti right now.

“We are constantly working in Haiti. We’ve been working in Haiti for years and that’s helped us be extremely effective in the earthquake. As far as Japan goes we are offering our training in networking, in connections best we can to help anyone that’s headed to Japan.” he says.

To help raise awareness about the importance of clean drinking water, the Frazier Museum will host a free World Water Day event tomorrow Tuesday from 6 to 8 pm.
