Water Works

Science and service converge in a Rollins field study that has helped bring clean water to the Dominican Republic for more than two decades.

It’s May 2017 on the island of the Dominican Republic. It’s hot. Sticky. Almost unbearably so. But Rollins chemistry professor Pedro Bernal is unfazed. There are water filters to assemble. There is information to collect and numbers to record. And it’s here, doing this work, that Bernal is most energized.
