The towers will be installed in early November 2017 through a partnership with Planet Water Foundation, a U.S.-based non-profit organization that works to bring clean water to the world’s most disadvantaged communities. The AquaTowers are being installed to provide relief to residents of Puerto Rico, many of whom remain without clean drinking water in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
The AquaTowers filter water to remove bacteria, protozoa, viruses, pathogens, and other contaminants to produce clean drinking water. This “green” solution operates without power or the use of chemicals and can be easily maintained.
In mid-October, Watts employee volunteers also installed an AquaTower at the SDN Merak II School in the Greater Jakarta area of Indonesia. In July, Watts volunteers erected an AquaTower at a secondary school in the village of Nelekuppam, India.
“We are deeply concerned about the many people suffering from a lack of clean water,” said Robert J. Pagano, Jr., Chief Executive Officer and President of Watts Water Technologies, Inc. “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.”
