World Water Day

World Water Day, which takes place on March 22, was created to put a spotlight on the importance of water. Highlighting an aspect of freshwater each year, the 2017 theme is ‘Water and Wastewater’.

At Dow Water & Process Solutions, a business specializing in sustainable liquid purification and separation technologies, we want to take this time to reflect on the relationship between water, wastewater and sustainable water management practices.

We invite you to join us in immersing yourself in World Water Day and gaining more knowledge about water and wastewater, innovative technologies and sustainability models with the content below. Check back each week for new stories and information.
