Ron Rivera

Posted by: Skylar In: water

The Water Wired blog posted an article about the death of 60 year old Ron Rivera.  Ron Rivera worked for Potters for Peace, teaching locals how to create ceramic pots that would help purify drinking water:

The pots, with their small pores and silver lining, would eliminate such pathogens as E. coli, giardia, and cryptospiridium. They dramatically lowered the incidence of waterborne diseases.

His work is very inspiring, I’d encourage you to read the article at Water Wired.
