Regardless of whether you live in a developed country or not, no one is completely protected from water issues and solutions. Being properly informed about the health concerns from impure water is crucial so that you can avoid any health risks. Bad water quality is not to be taken lightly as it can lead to a myriad of unpleasant health conditions.
- Unsafe water is responsible for 1.2 million deaths each year.
- 6% of deaths in low-income countries are the result of unsafe water sources.
- 666 million (9% of the world) does not have access to an improved water source.
- 2.1 billion (29% of the world) do not have access to safe drinking water
About Our Team
Water is essential to allow the cycle of life. Ecosystems are at risk and billions of human lives depend on access to safe water. Having access to pure, clean and fresh drinking water is essential for every human being. While our bodies can definitely survive for weeks on end without any food, you only stay alive for a few days without the hydrating properties of water.
The editor of this ‘water-related’ blog is a citizen, swimmer, lifeguard and scuba diver surrounded by 3 oceans and living on an island with rivers and lakes. Over the years visiting different countries, seduced by an amazing underwater world, involved in cleanup efforts and coral restoration projects, our city has been hit by a major ‘flushgate’ event.

This website is a citizen-based initiative with the mission to inform humans about water pollution issues and solutions. This project is not funded or sponsored by any agency or organisation. While volunteer time and skills have been provided for years to maintain this website, donations are appreciated to cover expenses occurring in maintaining a website and writing quality articles.
Support our work raising awareness on water pollution issues and solutions. Created in 2015, this site has evolved from originally raising awareness around the flushgate in Montreal gathering information about sewage spills and wastewater leaks to extend more broadly to water pollution issues around the world.
