This activity challenges students to work in small teams to design a water supply system for a small town of 5,000 inhabitants. They have to work within a budget, including giving themselves a profit margin.

The activity offers strong opportunities for cross-curricular work with Enterprise.

The Catalogue of components handout includes a list of possible parts from which students can include in their design of their filtration system.

This activity, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), can be used as a stand-alone resource or with the other resources in the World Water collection.
