Protecting Our Planet

The Weizmann Effect: Clean water

Of the 2.5 percent of the world’s water that’s safe to drink, how do we keep it that way, seeing as it’s mostly underground? Thanks to the Weizmann Institute’s groundwater dynamics model, we can now predict how contaminants will spread, so we can reach endangered parts of the water supply faster, and detoxify any polluted groundwater before it disperses.

Every day, Weizmann Institute scientists in Israel work to protect our planet from every kind of threat imaginable. Help protect the freedom to pursue their curiosity.
