This short video captures the excitement of The George Barley Water Prize Stage 3 awards ceremony, held in downtown Toronto a few weeks ago. Sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, this four-stage competition offers an incentive for scientists and technologists to deliver a breakthrough for solving phosphorus-fed algal blooms that affect all 50 U.S. states and many waterways worldwide. The top four remaining teams are now preparing their plans for the $10 million final Grand Challenge stage in Florida, where they will need to process up to 1 million gallons of water per day with their technologies.
