  • A Gigantic Bag of Water

    Imagine a bag that has a 25 foot diameter, is 230-ft. long, and contains 770,000 gallons (2,916m3) of water. That's a lot of water! In 1990, Terry G. Spragg & Associates demonstrated the technology. Since then, they'e been developing and testing this technology. A Spragg Bag has a gigantic zipper that can connect more then one bag.

    Spragg see the bag as an economical way to deliver fresh water, more economical than building a reservoir, reclaiming water or desalination. Peter Gleick, international water expert, suggests using the Spragg Bag to deliver water to disaster areas. He points out that now we "load heavy pallets of plastic bottles filled with water onto cargo planes and fly them over to disaster areas."

    Empty Spragg Bags can be stored on military ships or in large cities around the world. They would be faster to get to a disaster than bottled water. You can fill the bag from any working water source, the closer to the disaster the more efficient.
