Backpack Water Filter Day 1

Backpack Water Filter Day 1

By: James Perez

We are going to build a backpack that has a layer of fabric that will filter water, if it’s poured into the backpack. We will need to also apply iodine to the water to make sure that there is no bacteria in the water. It will cost about $57 and should take around 3 months to complete. It will help campers and hikers have clean water in the wilderness.
