Abstract

Decision Support Tools are applications that can be downloaded on to devices like smart phones or computers that aid the user through a series of questions to provide a clear and simple solution to their problem. These types of tools are available online through several different mediums. MST DrinKlean's goal is to create a user friendly source for finding the best solution to safe drinking water based on the circumstances of particular communities. An initial step to developing this tool has been the setting of parameters and analyzing various filtration devices. Clean Drinking water is vital not only for low income people and families in rural USA, but in developing countries where disease and sickness cause over 1.6 million deaths each year. There are over 800 million people around the world without access to clean water. MST DrinKlean can help find the best way to provide safe drinking water to those who need it.99
