$30 Bucket Cleans Water for Thousands in Baja Sur

Audio

Plastic buckets fitted with ultraviolet light bulbs are helping provide clean drinking in Baja California Sur. Thousands of people there traditionally have not had access to clean water. Florence Cassassuce studied environmental engineering at UC Berkeley. She won a grant from the World Bank to develop the bucket. She's passed out thousands in the past few years. KPBS Border Reporter Amy Isackson spoke with her at the Institute of the Americas in La Jolla.
