The AquaTowers remove harmful particles, bacteria and viruses, providing 1,000 people with 10,000 liters of clean water per unit daily. “We are proud to once again join forces with Planet Water to bolster the clean drinking water supply in Cambodia,” said Robert J. Pagano, Jr., CEO and President of Watts. “It’s also very exciting to participate in Project 1000, which will mark 1 million people served globally by Planet Water and its partners.” Watts employees based in China, Korea, and New Zealand will help install AquaTowers at the Chan Hea Primary School and Sakada Primary School, which are located in Cambodia’s Svay Leu District.

The 1,000th AquaTower will be built in early October in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, the region where Planet Water deployed its very first projects.
