United Nations World Water Day has been observed on March 22 since 1993 when the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as “World Day for Water” and is coordinated by UN-Water. The UN and its 193 member nations devote this day to implementing UN recommendations and promoting concrete activities within their countries regarding the world’s water resources. In addition to the UN Member States, a number of NGOs promoting clean water leverage World Water Day as a time to focus public attention on the critical water issues of our era.

Clean Water Here promotes the need for safe drinking water in the United States. Research indicates that out-of-date plumbing, sometimes over 100 years old is delivering water through pipes that often leak contaminants into the water. In addition, old-fashioned water treatment facilities may not always address 21st-century contaminants like pesticides, industrial chemicals and arsenic. So who is most likely to be drinking this water that is known to cause disease – the poorest and most vulnerable among us. Clean Water Here is dedicated to educating the public about this important issue. For more information, please visit www.cleanwater.org
