Watts Water Technologies Builds Water Filtration System at Luoxiang Center Primary School in China

To Our Valued Customers and Partners:

Watts Water Technologies is excited to announce our sponsorship in building a water filtration system at the Luoxiang Center Primary School in Luoxiang Township, Jinxiu County, Laibin City, Guangxi Autonomous Region in southwestern China, as part of a Planet Water Foundation initiative designed to bring clean water to communities around the world. The tower was erected on September 29, 2016.

This is our second project with Planet Water, a U.S.-based non-profit: the first was undertaken in Colombia in March 2016 as part of the world-wide Project 24 challenge.

A team of Watts volunteers erected an “AquaTower” at the Luoxiang school. The tower filters water to remove bacteria, protozoa, viruses, pathogens, and other contaminants to produce clean drinking water for a community of approximately 1,000 people. This “green” solution operates without power or the use of chemicals and can be easily maintained.

To support good use of this new water source for the community, our volunteers taught the teachers at the school water-health and hygiene lessons and did hygiene-related activities with the students.

Our Company is delighted to be a sponsor of the Planet Water Foundation, and our volunteer team was excited to bring clean drinking water to this remote region of China.

Our mission is to improve comfort, safety, and quality of life for people around the world through our expertise in water technologies. Central to this is helping people access clean, safe water.

I am proud that Watts Water is supporting the work of Planet Water and thought that you would be interested in hearing about our latest mission to bring clean water to those in need of it.
