Providing safe drinking water for large groups of people in back-country locations is challenging. It can be even more challenging if the back country is a designated wilderness area, with restrictions on motorized devices. Outfitters in some wilderness areas have been using an electrically operated water treatment system that is inconsistent with wilderness regulations, policies, and guidelines. The Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Intermountain Region, submitted a project to San Dimas Technology and Development Center (SDTDC) to find and evaluate nonmotorized alternatives to treat water for large groups.
