Watts Water Technologies has partnered with U.S.-based non-profit Planet Water Foundation to fund and help install two water filtration systems at schools in Cambodia’s Svay Leu District in Siem Reap Province. The filtration systems aim to remove harmful particles, bacteria and viruses.

The partnership is part of Planet Water’s Project 1000 initiative. Watts employees based in China, Korea, and New Zealand will help install the systems at the Chan Hea Primary School and Sakada Primary School, marking the 1000th AquaTower installation.

Watts first joined forces with Planet Water in 2016. Since that time, the organizations have brought water filtration systems to Cambodia, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, the Republic of the Philippines, and Puerto Rico. www.wattswater.com
