Watts recently sponsored the installation of two integrated water systems that will provide clean water to residents of Sepapan, Lombok, Indonesia and San Miguel Zapotitlan, Jalisco, Mexico. To support these communities, Watts joined Planet Water Foundation for its annual Project 24 initiative to erect AquaTower water filtration systems at both villages’ primary schools, providing children and their families with easy access to clean, safe drinking water and handwashing facilities.
Watts also donated an AquaSan mobile surface disinfection system to promote good water hygiene practices in the school’s latrines and funded a water health and hygiene education program for more than 2,750 community members.
“Safe and clean water is a fundamental human right, and we are committed to safeguarding this through our partnership with Planet Water Foundation, as well as our products and solutions that protect, control, and conserve water,” said Robert J. Pagano, Jr., CEO, President, and Chairperson of the Board. “As a responsible corporate citizen, Watts will continue these efforts to improve access and create a more equitable world.”
Watts has partnered with Planet Water since 2016, providing clean water to approximately 45,000 people in Cambodia, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Philippines, Thailand, and Puerto Rico.
