To commemorate Xylem’s anniversary in October, employees and stakeholders around the world came together to provide and protect safe water resources for communities in need and to educate people about water issues during the annual Global Month of Service.

RYE BROOK, NY, November 15, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, is partnering with the Cityzens Giving annual charitable campaign launched today, a Manchester City Football Club global community initiative, which helps young leaders around the world change lives through the power of football.
Sensus, a Xylem brand, recently hosted its annual user conference for customers, partners and distributors. The conference took place in Anaheim, California on November 3-6, and featured more than 220 sessions and Learning Labs across the company’s product and service offerings, along with networking and entertainment opportunities.
Powerful things can happen when the water well industry works together, and this was apparent when the Water Well Trust (WWT) partnered with industry organizations to bring safe water supplies to rural Americans in need.
In the past three years, the WWT has worked with three charitable organizations—Culligan Cares, Pentair Foundation and Xylem Watermark—to rehabilitate old wells and drill new wells for families in New York, Louisiana, Georgia, Montana, Arkansas, North Carolina and Texas.
Nine million people in Mexico do not have access to potable water and another 10.2 million people lack basic sanitation infrastructure in their homes. Access to clean water affects children the most, with many missing school due to water-related illnesses. Through Xylem Watermark’s partnership with Planet Water and the Flex Foundation, 10 primary schools in Aguascalientes, Mexico recently received clean water access through community-based water filtration systems and hygiene education programs.
September 5, 2019 /3BL Media/ — In celebration of World Water Monitoring Day on September 18, Xylem Watermark is collaborating with environmental youth leadership organization EarthEcho International to host youth-led events nationwide that will help communities around the world be part of a clean water future for our planet.
This summer, Xylem invited colleagues to participate in plogging – a new signature Watermark activity that embodies Xylem’s commitment to safeguarding the environment and contributing to our local communities.
Plogging is a global fitness trend that combines jogging (or walking) and picking up trash. While plogging, volunteers spend time outdoors, exercise, and pick up litter that often flows untreated into waterways, contaminating water sources, and threatening the health of animals and plants.
Meet the Salazar’s, and their daughter, Nissi, a young woman who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child. The Salazar’s live on a small plot of land outside of San Antonio, Texas where they have resided for most of Nissi’s life. For 24 years they have lived there and made it home, but in that time financing and building a well had always been out of reach for the family. The Salazar’s are just one family out of the 1.5 million Americans who do not have access to clean water or modern plumbing. For most of Nissi’s life, she has never experienced clean running water or a hot shower.
World Water Day marked the launch of this year’s Make Your Mark 30 Day Challenge for Xylem Watermark—the philanthropic arm of Xylem, Inc. This month of service spans from World Water Day to Earth Day and encourages Xylem colleagues around the world to volunteer globally and in their local communities to bring awareness to the global water crisis.
