Lifestream completed a project designing and building a 26,400 gallon per day, trailer mounted, mobile seawater desalination system for the Island of Chuuk (also know as Truk) in the Federated States of Micronesia. This system now provides emergency water supply for the island's 55,000 residents. Before we arrived, the island was suffering from an extended drought and did not have a dependable water supply.
Lifestream was contacted by the LDS Church and asked to manufacture this self contained unit as a humanitarian gesture, desalinating the seawater from the surrounding ocean and lagoons.
Lifestream's crew had the unforgettable experience of being on the island of Weno, in Chuuk, to start up the desalinator and share the excitement of the first abundant flow of pure water with it's citizens.
