Supporting World Water Day
The March 22, 2013 - United Nations' World Water Day is Friday, March 22. First celebrated in 1993, World Water Day provides a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources, a topic near and dear to CH2M HILL's heart. This year's theme is international water cooperation, which stresses the importance of working across boundaries to preserve, protect and provide water.
Water is an underlying part in much of what CH2M HILL does. From building water and wastewater plants to cleaning up hazardous waste, water unites most of our work. CH2M HILL's interest in water goes beyond our projects as we have a number of water-related activities upcoming. In April, U.S. employees will be encouraged to participate in the National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation to compete with other cities by pledging to use less water in your home, yard, community and life. CH2M HILL's WaterMatch is a sponsor. In 2012, residents from 1,000 cities in all 50 U.S. states pledged to save a total of 4.7 billion gallons of water over the course of a year, winning great prizes along the way.
In May, Drinking Water Week highlights CH2M HILL's annual Water For People Workplace Giving Campaign. Stay tuned for ways you can donate to help bring clean water and improved sanitation to people in developing countries through Water For People's innovative programs.
