WACO, Texas, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, World Water Day brings attention to the global water crisis and water-related issues in an effort to educate consumers from around the world on the importance of water conservation, sustainability and safety. On March 22, World Water Day will focus on water and jobs, and the power they have to transform and enhance people's livelihoods.
According to the United Nations, half of all workers worldwide are employed in water-related sectors and throughout history innovations in these industries have made significant impacts on global health. The pluming industry, in particular, has been a leading influence on health revolutions.
