Here's How We’re Bringing Clean Water to the World

As of a 2022 study, over 771 million people around the globe lack access to clean and safe drinking water according to the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. For perspective, that’s enough people to fill up the largest stadium ever built–5,140 times.

With that being said, this is a critical problem to solve and a massive scale to accommodate. However, with the collaboration of DOXA Research Group and hundreds of incredible people, we’ve gotten started on our journey to bring clean water to the world.

This task is impossible to complete without help. McGregor Surmount has been working diligently with the fantastic team at DOXA Research Group to develop faster, safer and more efficient systems to pump safe drinking water.

DOXA Research Group’s mission is to “provide quality water solutions by the drilling and installation of wells, to research and produce improved technologies, and to deliver prompt, affordable, honest, and courteous service to communities in supplying quality water.” (DOXA Research Group). With this mission in mind, our engineering team at McGregor have designed and developed wire assemblies to aid in transmitting information to DOXA Link–a service that provides water-level data from each pump to a network, with the ability to predict when the aquifer may be active again.

This incredible technology enables tribes and communities in third-world countries to accurately and effectively bring water to their families, decreasing their daily workload in the process.

In the picture above, children can be seen gathering around a recently-installed well in Uganda. The white fixture attached to the well contains the DOXA Link device as well as the wire assembly designed by the engineers at McGregor Surmount.

As of 2023, DOXA has helped to install 269 pumps with more on the way. Breaking this down, over 276,449 pumping hours have been recorded and over 47 million gallons of water have been delivered.

We are extremely proud to be a part of this incredible operation and DOXA Research Group shares our same appreciation. Stephen Peacock from DOXA had this to say about our collaboration with their team:

"I'm grateful and pleased to report 100% success on the McGregor portion of the Uganda trip… The harness for the modem, battery pack and float switch work perfectly. No signs of failure or any problems. Six full days of reporting on these first five pumps, all good,”

- Stephen Peacock, Senior Research Engineer DOXA Research Group Inc.

He also had this to say about our solution for the harness component:

“Excellent idea and implementation. Fitting the harness is a breeze - and looks clean and professional. Doxa Research really appreciates your help! One pump is used around 6+ hours a day, so more than 5,000 liters needed in that village each day. It's been like that every day for a week!”

Once again, we would like to thank everyone at DOXA Research Group for allowing us to take part in this magnificent project. We would also like to thank the dozens of local organizations helping to fund this mission and improve the lives of millions. None of this would have been possible without the contributions of the generous people like you.
