History of World Plumbing Day

WPC was created as a means of highlighting the important role the plumbing industry plays in relation to public health and the environment. The first World Plumbing Day was celebrated on March 11, 2010. (so it is new, although, you have to agree a great initiative)

According to a study recently conducted by the World Health Organization 1.1 billion people in the world have no access to safe water and another 2.6 billion have no effective means of sanitation

The United Nations has also declared 2005-2015 the International Decade for Action “Water for Life”, setting a world agenda that focuses increased attention on water-related issues. This initiative is of extraordinary importance in a world where preventable diseases related to water and sanitation claim the lives of about 3.1 million people per year, most of them children less than 5 years old. Of these, about 1.6 million people die each year of diarrheal diseases associated with lack of safe drinking water and adequate sanitation.

Using the theme “Plumbing- Vital for Global Health” The WPC encouraged plumbing organizations throughout the world to undertake some activity which would raise the profile of the industry.
