On Tuesday, February 13, The Art Pratt Foundation of Old Mission Rotary presented a grant in the amount of $5,977 to Aquam Technologies LLC.  This cutting-edge water technology company offers the only packaged treatment plant that can deliver a 4-hour treatment time, reduce total sludge volumes and recover energy as direct electricity without releasing methane. 
 
The Art Pratt Foundation grant will be used to set up a water treatment plant at the school for a migrant farm camp in San Quentin Baja.  Old Mission Rotary has been active for a decade in assisting the Mestizo Indian population in the tomato farming region and now will be funding equipment that will supply fresh water to the children at the school.  The local public water supply is heavily contaminated with agricultural chemicals.
