World Water Day
March 22nd is World Water Day.
We can eat all the best foods for our bodies to be healthy.
But without clean water, we cannot survive. Let alone the fact that we need water
to grow those healthy foods.
World Water Day is recognized world wide. Since 1993, the United Nations has set themes for the message it wants to let the world know about the importance of clean water.
This year it is "Better water, Better Jobs". Nearly 1.5 billion people work in water related sectors
and nearly all jobs depend on water and it's safety.
I am honored to be a part of an industry that our mission is to maintain, restore and preserve
our water systems.
According to the World Health Organization, nearly twice the population of the US (664 million)
live without access to clean water. Many live right here, like Flint, Michigan, and numerous other cities nationwide.
