A political action and civic participation community around the world, people march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads just to mention a few benefits of the popular celebrations.

Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.
In the plumbing industry around this country and around the world, Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) this year has released some pretty defining information you need to know and understand about water systems. PMI does work daily to assure and advocate the ongoing protection of water systems.
Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) advocates for the restoration of America’s aging underground water infrastructure to save water and improve water and sanitation safety. The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) gave the U.S. drinking water and wastewater systems D grades on its most recent Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. Among the nation’s most significant challenges are 850 water main breaks a day, according to the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that more than 1.7 trillion gallons of treated water are lost to leaks annually, with 16 percent of the treated water never reaching the tap.
Water supplies in America are becoming strained due to drought and regional population growth, as well, making a strong and efficient water infrastructure all the more important. Less precipitation in California and other states has dramatically reduced mountain snowpack and the amount of water stored in reservoirs. See the U.S. Drought Monitor, which shows parts of the country currently being affected by drought. In addition, there is greater demand for water in arid regions where population is growing, such as southern California, Las Vegas and Phoenix.
Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) advocates the restoration of the United States’ underground water infrastructure to reduce risks to safe, sustainable drinking water and promote the efficient use of water. This solution will end catastrophic leakage and public safety hazards resulting from the current, aging infrastructure. The deterioration of the nation’s aging underground water infrastructure also has an adverse effect on public health and safety, as seen most dramatically in Flint, Mich., as well as in other cities and town across the nation.
PMI and its members are doing their part, and remember that Action and PMI are committed to its vision of “Safe, responsible plumbing. Always.” As a key component in the overall water system, and support the value of products that maximize the efficient use of water. Creating a safe and efficient expanded underground water infrastructure that will meet the needs of all Americans, even those living in regions affected by water shortages is just the beginning of the process.
