Clean and Pure Drinking Water

Clean and Pure Drinking Water

The UN’s recent #WorldWaterDay highlighted the basic human need for drinking water that is clean and pure. Rainwater collected from a Gerard system exceeds the WHO’s standards for clarity and purity.

Gerard roofs have been independently tested and the ‘run-off’ meets World Health Organization guidelines for potable water. 

Safe and readily available water is important for public health, whether it is used for drinking, domestic use, food production or recreational purposes. Improved water supply and sanitation, and better management of water resources, can boost countries’ economic growth and can contribute greatly to poverty reduction. Clean and pure drinking water is a human right.

In 2010, the UN General Assembly explicitly recognised the human right to water and sanitation. Everyone has the right to sufficient, continuous, safe, acceptable, physically accessible, and affordable water for personal and domestic use.
