Expeditions' newest mini water treatment plant has just been completed in the village of San Jose de Paranapura. About 60 families live in this village on the Rio Ucayali. A four-stage filtration system produces up to 2,200 liters of clean water each day. For these families, our water treatment plant means parasite-free water to drink, brush their teeth and cook with every day! Boiling is the only other way to get clean water, requiring harvesting of trees to build and sustain a fire.
