Welcome to FogQuest


FogQuest is a non-profit, registered Canadian charity dedicated to planning and implementing water projects for rural communities in developing countries. We utilize innovative fog collectors as well as effective rainfall collectors to make optimum use of natural
atmospheric sources of water.

We are currently implementing, supervising, or contributing to fog collection projects in eight countries. FogQuest builds upon the
experience gained in projects conducted since 1987, which have
repeatedly shown the viability and effectiveness of using fog
collectors to produce clean water for people in developing countries

For more information on FogQuest and how we work, please visit the what we do page.

We ask your patience as FogQuest moves to a new content management system platform for our website. This work is being done by volunteers and is almost complete. Substantial updates of parts of the site will also be provided once the revision is operational. In the meantime, we hope you find the current features of the site helpful and informative.

Miracle in the Mist





This program was produced by journalist Lauren Millar for the series Journeys on TVOntario. It was shown extensively on TVO and Discovery Channel in the mid-1990s. It is now on YouTube and provides helpful background on starting fog collection projects in developing countries. These projects in Ecuador were initiated by Bob Schemenauer and Pilar Cereceda in the years before FogQuest was established.
