These kinds of skills are valuable in addressing the problem:

  • Mechanical Engineering, Pump Design

These organizations are working on the problem and can use your skills:

There are many systems readily available to clean water. Although most of these devices are expensive and are not the traditional ways of the purification process. New technology has improved the process and the accesibility to these systems. The image below shows a low cost and individual system for clean water.
