For more than 70 years, Hach® has provided innovations to support customers. Hach gives customers confidence in their water analysis by delivering expert answers, outstanding support, and reliable, easy-to-use solutions. Hach analytical instruments, services, software, and reagents are used to ensure the quality of water in a variety of industries in more than 100 countries globally.
In 2017, Hach hosted its 4th Annual Walk for Water, in support of Water Mission, near its corporate headquarters in Loveland, CO. The event brought together nearly 400 employees, family members and friends who walked in solidarity with the millions of women and children in developing countries who walk an average of 3.2 miles on a daily basis to collect dirty water. Together, last year's Walk raised over $65,000 to fund safe water projects in the communities of Andot, Cambodia and Santa Clotilde, Peru.
Water Mission has delivered safe water solutions in 55 countries since 2001, and have commissioned five safe water projects in the Phnom Penh region of Cambodia that have been highly successful. In Andot, Cambodia, Water Mission Indonesia staff have installed a solar-powered pump, controller, and solar panels that will facilitate proper filtration and disinfection of water in the newly constructed water distribution building. In Peru, Water Mission staff have installed the necessary pipeline and structures and the project was recently commissioned, bringing safe water to more than 1,500 people. Safe Water Committees are currently conducting Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) training with the community members in both villages, to ensure sustainability for years to come.
Everyone is invited to join us as we Walk for Water. This year, we hope you'll join us as we come together again to take a step forward in fighting the global water crisis.
