Lima’s University of Engineering & Technology (UTEC) recently erected this water-producing billboard along the Panamericana Sur, or Panamerican Highway, in the village of Bujama. While the coasts of Peru have humidity levels averaging around 98 percent, the region receives only 1″-2″ of rainfall annually. Looking for ways to bring safe, potable drinking water to residents, as well as inspiring future generations of engineers, this billboard has already produced over 2,400 gallons of water in a three month period.

The village of Bujama, approximately 40 miles south of Lima, Peru's capital and largest city.
