Fog Harp

Fog Harp is a design for a fog harvesting material which builds on insights from coniferous trees in nature to improve drinking water yields. Fog harvesting is a passive water technology in its infancy that has proven valuable as part of a larger water management strategy for municipalities and communities around the world, particularly with those experiencing drought. Fog Harp is patent pending, award winning and currently undergoing pilot testing at California State University Monterey Bay.
