World Plumbing Day is around the corner! On March 11th, every year, everywhere, the World Plumbing Council will be celebrating the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of the modern world.
All over the world, the safety and abundance of drinking water is a concern, but what’s not often emphasized is the work the plumbing industry does every day to alleviate these concerns. Many people in developed countries take plumbing for granted – simply turn on the faucet to obtain clean water and flushing a toilet is a standard. In developing countries however, plumbing is either non existent or basic at best. People suffer serious health consequences and millions die as a result of lack of access to clean water and in effective sanitation.
Whether you’re an organization or an individual, help us spread awareness through one of the activities suggested by the WPC. Patterson Plumbing & Heating is proud of the work we do and hopes our community will take the time to think about how important it is to be provided with clean and safe water.
