"Many bacterias and heavy metals that are commonly found in natural bodies of water are harmful to drink. A common filtration technique, known as charcoal filtering, is proven to rid water of harmful contaminants. After constructing our homemade charcoal filter and experimenting, results showed that our charcoal filter reduced a number of harmful contaminants including Ammonium Chloride, Chlorine, and reduced high pH levels in multiple sources of water."
