Acute freshwater reservoir pollution is a major problem in water security throughout the world. Because thousands of pollutants can be responsible for acute contamination, it is not cost effective to install permanent fixed filtration systems capable of removing each variety of pollutant.

We designed a pollution control platform based on a seascooter with a custom-designed modular filtration canister, capable of being dynamically deployed to an acute contamination site equipped with the right filter for the task and equipped with an AWS-compatible data collection suite. As a result, our vehicle is cheap, dynamically deployable, and can collect in-depth data at the site of contamination. �
