CALGARY, March 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Pure Technologies Ltd. ("Pure" or the
"Company") is a proud sponsor and participant in CAWST's World Water
Day being held in Calgary on March 16. The event recognizes the world's
most precious resource and the actions taken by local communities to
access and protect water. It also highlights CAWST's global educational
and training programs that provide safe drinking water and sanitation
"Pure's values align very closely with both CAWST and World Water Day,"
noted Mike Wrigglesworth, Senior Vice President, International. "Our
mission involves helping our utility partners protect and sustainably
manage critical water and wastewater pipelines that are necessary for
everyday life. When we think of water issues, we tend to think of those
in developing nations - many people are unaware of the ongoing work
that goes into protecting North American water infrastructure. The
management of these systems by utilities is becoming increasingly
important as water demands increase over time and existing pipelines
continue to age, becoming more susceptible to failure. Pure plays a
critical role by inspecting, monitoring and helping to manage these
lines for future generations, while greatly reducing water losses."
During World Water Day, representatives from Pure will be on-site to
showcase innovative technologies that are used by utilities to manage
water and wastewater pipelines, and to reduce losses.
The event features:
The presentation of youth action plans with an emphasis on protecting
Youth performances relating to water and sanitation issues
An interactive technology experience highlighting simple water purifying
technologies used around the world
Opportunities to learn about local and global water issues, including
CAWST's global actions and impact
Opportunities for employee engagement through volunteer opportunities
and event attendance
