World Water Day: the importance of water treatment to preserve the environment

World Water Day: the importance of water treatment to preserve the environment

March 22 is the World Water Day. On this date it is intended to emphasize the importance of water as a fundamental element of life and an essential part for the conservation of the environment and human development.

Each year, March 22 becomes a date to claim the importance of this element. Specifically, in 2017 the UN calls this year to focus on the management of wastewater and the reuse of water resources.

Approximately 71% of the land surface is covered with water, although only 2% is potable. Because of this, caring and conservation of ecosystems is fundamental. According to the UN, half of the world’s population will live somewhere with shortages of fresh water. This is because more than 80% of the wastewater we generate returns to ecosystems without being treated or recycled.
