Fog is being thought of to help solve some of California's drought problems. According to a recent Vogue article, FogQuest, a nonprofit company, is working to harvest water out of fog in key areas of the state, especially in the San Francisco area.
How exactly does it work? According to the Vogue article, "Erected in strategic locations, they are made up of large plastic mesh sheets that collect the water droplets in the air, which then drip down into a tank." This system has had some success in such areas of the world as Ethiopia, Guatemala and Chile, which see little rain each year.
There is an interesting twist to this story too. A company in California is attempting to make vodka with water collected from the FogQuest fog catchers. Now that's cool!
