In the coming days, both the World Plumbing Council and the EPA are shedding light on the importance of water to our ecosystem.
Annually, the World Plumbing Council celebrates World Plumbing Day on March 11th in an effort to bring awareness on the importance of plumbing and it’s significance to global health. With the recent Flint, MI water crisis, their message of “Clean water is NOT a luxury” couldn’t be more relevant. Alongside the World Health Organization, The World Plumbing Council has published two extensive fact sheets on the impacts of effective plumbing systems which you can read HERE. But the health aspects of adequate plumbing infrastructure isn’t the only thing vital to sustaining our planet.
The environmental impacts our population has on our water sources play a critical role in sustaining clean water. The EPA’s WaterSense program celebrates Fix a Leak Week annually to bring awareness to the impact that leaky faucets and water systems have on wasted water. Take a look at the fact sheet below to learn more about the effects of leaking water systems.
Here’s some water saving tips you can easily implement into your daily life.
