PerunetIn Peru, water can be a scarce necessity. But what they lack for in this resource, the country more than makes up for it in abundant fog. Recently scientists have devised a way to harvest the water present in fog by catching it with nets. Once enough water is collected it streams down makeshift gutters and is then collected into tanks at the bottom of the hillside.

Low income and rural families are now able to have a healthy, free source of water to drink and to much needed crops as well. LINK!
