Watts Partners with Planet Water Foundation to Bring Clean Water to India
May 03, 2019
Watts Water Technologies, Inc. – a leading global manufacturer of plumbing, heating, and water quality products and solutions – recently funded and helped install two water filtration systems that provide clean drinking water for children and families in need in India.
Watts employees from its Shanghai, China, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Auckland, New Zealand offices helped erect the towers, which remove harmful particles, bacteria and viruses, providing 1,000 people with 10,000 liters of clean water per unit daily. The effort was part of Planet Water’s “Project 24,” where its corporate partners annually build towers in rural communities on World Water Day.
“As a global leader in water technologies, we have a responsibility to improve access to safe water,” said Robert J. Pagano, Jr., CEO and President of Watts. “We are proud to volunteer in India where there is a great need for washing, cleaning and cooking water, especially in the country’s rural communities.”
Watts first joined forces with Planet Water in 2016. Since that time, the organizations have brought clean water to 13,000 people in Cambodia, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico.
Watts has plans to fund two additional AquaTowers later this year with Planet Water Foundation.
