Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis examines the pre-conditions for implementing a rain water harvesting system with additional purification on a school in a rural area of Cameroon. The villagers in this area are in general poor and lack basic access to water. The amount of rain in relation to the water need is thoroughly studied and two different UV purification are examined as potential systems for future use. The results showed that rain water harvesting is a suitable solution for the school if complemented by the further use of a natural spring nearby. The UV-systems are currently nearly non-existent on the Cameroonian market.
