Today is World Water Day. I've been working on clean drinking water issues for years and was inspired to check in.
Unfortunately, the world water crisis is as dire as ever - Nearly one billion people lack access to safe drinking water - Almost 4,500 children die each day to water related diseases.
There are no simple solutions. Water issues are complicated by geographies, politics, cultures, and poverty. Not only is water essential for life, but access to safe drinking water is directly correlated to improvements in personal health, educational achievement, and worker productivity.
