This Week 6-12-23: New Discoveries for Water

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!

Congratulations to our new Ambassadors and say “hello” to our newest members:

Karen OHayer (Illinois), Sarah Bruce (Oregon), Bob Maraist (Illinois), Michael Bone




WHO TO KNOW: Real water warriors walk the talk as Rob Caliendo did this past week. When the beach opposite his home was closed, he learned he had an opportunity to advance a chemical-free treatment solution that could biodredge the “muck” and toxicity causing the beach closures. Not only did Rob help build community through his walk, but he attracted 28 passionate lake lovers to a local briefing by Global Water Works. Rob helped kick things off with a passionate plea to restore the gem of a lake that is also the towns namesake: Grayslake.


What would you like to see more of in the Global Water Works community?


  • Case studies – 33%

  • Other, please comment – 22%

Participants noted all of the above are helpful in covering various dimensions of the topics.

Mallory Chaput added, “It would be really cool to see highlights of the heroes in water through interviews with professionals such as operators, managers, mechanics, engineers, lab techs, and other professionals.” EDITOR’S NOTE: Everyone can contribute to Global Water Works, so if you’re not seeing something you want, we invite you to help fill the gap!




WONDER OF WATER: Over 75 years ago, one man showed how to purify water naturally and how to harness its colossal power. A simple forester, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958), made some of the most truly fundamental discoveries of the 20th century, opening completely new energy sources for humanity with his vortex technology. Read on to learn how Schauberger's observations revealed unique properties of water that can be harnessed in current innovations.




TECH TALK: Adonis Muganozi profiles the Western Region of Uganda, where a concerning situation is unfolding. Nakivale Refugee Settlement, located in Isingiro District, is currently facing a significant challenge in accessing water due to a water shortage and contamination in Nakivale. The local people lack the pumping and filtration equipment to make the polluted water from Lake Nakivale (the primary water source) usable. The situation reminds us of the need for diverse water resources to address shortages or contamination. The Global Water Works prayer team made this a focus of our time this week, and members of Global Water Works are invited to chime in on Adonis’s post if you are aware of filtration or pumping solutions (or computers for locals) near this refugee settlement.




FUN WITH WATER: Water tanks become works of art, as these beautiful murals demonstrate. Hats off to Greg Chick, who shared these water tower and tank murals as a reminder to GIVE TANKS. ;-)





COOL RESEARCH: Engineers at Northwestern University have developed a sponge that can remove and recover metals, including lead, from contaminated water.
