Water Purification Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
Have you ever thought about what you would drink if you ever got stranded in the wilderness without clean water? Well Mr. Troen has, and he decided to test our class’s wisdom on the subject. In this lab we received slough water and were told to make it so we would drink it. In my group we decided to try a number of different things to make it drinkable. To start off our purification process we electrically shocked the water (Picture 1).We thought of this because of the hunger games when they shocked the water to kill of the organisms in it. Next we filtered it with filter paper to get out the chunks. We happened to do this three times, just to make sure. After we filtered it we decided to boil it for about ten minutes (Pictures 2 and 3).
