               Need or Desire
• Filtering water and finding a way to get it to
  people is/was a need for everyone and still is. As
  immigration increased more water was needed,
  but the water is/was becoming more polluted.
  This was because of all the people coming to the
  United States. When people started becoming
  sick and even dying from drinking water, people
  started making filtration systems. And finding
  different ways to clean water. Then they started
  to bottle water for distribution. With all the
  immigrants coming we needed an easy way to get
  water to everyone.
            Resources needed
• Scientist, water, chlorine, filters, people
        Who made water filters
• In 1854 British scientist john snow started
  adding chlorine to water to purify it. Many
  other scientist helped us get were we are
  today in sanitation of our water.
                 Problems
• The main problems that impacted the creation
  of filtration and distribution were pollution
  and over crowding. Pollution impacted the
  water supply because the more water that
  was polluted the less that can be distributed.
  Over crowding impacted because there were
  so many more people needing water
       Analysis 4 design principles
• 1. Pollution in there water and not enough water for all
  the people.
• 2. Solution to pollution is stop polluting and find away to
  clean water, solution to not enough water is to clean the
  water
• 3. First they used just sand filtration , then they made
  better filters , then added chlorine to the water , after
  that we made even better filtration systems that we use
  today.
• We use the water filtration that we use today because it
  lets the less amount of particles through.
