Researchers design a solar-powered desalination device for rural India

Many villages in rural India have to dig wells 50 to 70 meters deep to access drinking water. With India’s 1.3 billion people and counting, the wells need to go deeper and deeper. And with the aquifers getting deeper the salinity level of the water often increases. Too much salt is detrimental to health. Now MIT engineers have developed a low-cost, solar-powered desalination system.
