Watts Partners with Planet Water Foundation to Bring Clean Water to Thailand
Oct 15, 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 Sa Kaeo, Thailand.
The towers remove harmful particles, bacteria and viruses, providing 1,000 people with 10,000 liters of clean water per unit daily.
“We are proud to put our talent and resources behind Planet Water’s effort to abolish global water poverty one community at a time,” said Robert J. Pagano, Jr., CEO and President of Watts.
Watts first joined forces with Planet Water in 2016. Since that time, the organizations have brought clean water to 15,000 people in Cambodia, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Puerto Rico.
