Pentair, a global leader in sustainable water solutions, whose US headquarters are located in Minnesota, has announced its next Project Safewater initiative with Water Mission, a global engineering nonprofit, to deliver clean, safe drinking water and sanitation to 150,000 people in Central America. The project expands upon the two organizations’ first collaborative effort, which saw the successful implementation of scalable, sustainable safe water and sanitation projects in the Department of Colón, Honduras.
The new Project Safewater initiative will focus on Lempira and Intibucá, two Departments in the western region of Honduras. Pentair, Water Mission and local Honduran government organizations will work to deliver improvements in water quality, sanitation infrastructure and WASH (Water and Sanitation for Health) behaviors. Furthermore, the organizations will measure the health-related impacts and the economic and educational improvements related to water and sanitation interventions.
