Learn more about Fog and how to harvest it
No. Harvesting Fog Water doesn’t steal from other sources of water and does not pose a risk to the environment, on the contrary:
- If the fog is not collected it will go back to the atmosphere through temperature change. The biggest project implemented in South America of 75 fog catchers for supplying water to a village of 300 people did not even collect 1% of the total fog given is a flow of the current.
- The worry of fog catchers collecting all the fog is the same as the worry of wind turbines slowing down the winds.
- Conifers and redwood do irrigate on fog, hence their height, and reintroduce the water into the land, however, only 3% of initial redwood conifers vegetation is left to do that job.
One standard Fog Buster can harvest from 150-400 L of water per day which is the equivalent to 3 bathtubs, or enough water to cover the needs for a family of 4.
