Xylem and Planet Water Foundation Set to Bring Safe Drinking Water to Half a Million People Annually

Planet Water Foundation will integrate Xylem’s pumping technology across all the non-profit’s humanitarian water filtration and sanitation solutions, impacting up to 500,000 every year


Families are able to drink clean, safe water from a Planet Water AquaBlock located in a relocation camp in Lombok, Indonesia after a series of earthquakes destroyed water and electric systems in August, 2018. The AquaBlock features three Xylem pumping solutions, whether it be petrol, electric or in manual mode using a stepper pump (shown in use). Recently, the emergency response drinking water kiosks have been successfully deployed in Africa (Cyclone Idai) and relief camps India (floods).

During World Water Week 2019 which is set to address the theme of “water for society – including all,” global water technology company, Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), and Planet Water Foundation, a leading non-profit organization that addresses global water poverty by delivering clean water access and hygiene education programs, have announced plans to extend and deepen their partnership. As part of the organizations’ expanded partnership, which initially launched eight years ago to address water access issues in the world’s most impoverished communities, Planet Water Foundation is integrating Xylem pump products into all the non-profit’s water filtration and sanitation solutions.
