Water is essential to life

At Thermo Fisher Scientific, we are committed to help ensure a clean and safe environment, now and well into the future. Clean water is a fundamental need for everyone. It is essential to healthy communities, which is why we have partnered with charity: water to bring clean water to people in developing countries.

Pierre world water day

Pierre is part of our Center of Water Excellence located in Chelmsford, Mass. Each September, he and his peers participate in the Groundwork Lawrence Spicket River Cleanup. This event brings together local youth, businesses and community leaders to maintain the local river and surrounding parks and river walk and create a safe, clean destination for everyone to enjoy.

Pierre took the above photo of students observing a pH test of the local river water. They also had the opportunity to learn about turbidity, dissolved oxygen and conductivity during this event through water testing demonstrations.

nancy

As a leader within her local Rotary Club, Nancy has supported the organization’s Clean Water initiatives. Rotary members travel to villages that do not have clean water for all and install Hydraid biosand water filters, educate the community on sanitation and good hygiene practices. They also follow-up by inspecting and maintaining the filters year-after-year, and building relationships with the families they help.

Nancy has had the opportunity travel to Honduras twice to support the Clean Water project, once to install filters and another time to inspect and repair them. In the picture above she is rinsing sand to create one of three filtration layers in a biosand water filter.
