This past summer, the Water Well Trust partnered with Xylem Watermark to launch its largest project to date outside of Ashville in Holly Ridge, NC. The small town of 24 households relied on 3 deteriorating wells as its water source and did not have access to clean water. Xylem Watermark worked with local distributors, and together they assessed the site and installed 3 new well houses, which provided all 24 households access to clean, safe water.
Xylem employees from the America’s Commercial Team assembled and sponsored 275 water filters in partnership with Wine To Water at their annual sales meeting. Each filter provides one household, or 6-10 people, clean water for 10 years, so this initiative will help 275 families gain access to clean water.
In alignment with its commitment to solving global water issues, Xylem has responded to several natural disasters that occurred in 2018. The most recent disaster that prompted Xylem employees to act was Hurricane Florence, which caused devastation in North and South Carolina. In preparation of the storm, the local Xylem Commercial Team deployed dewatering pumps and equipment to its customers to help them withstand the weather and protect critical infrastructure to mitigate the negative impacts of the storm.
