Welcome to the home of Water Incorporated

We are a registered charity dedicated to:

  • raising funds to support projects bringing clean, safe drinking water to communities around the world deprived of this basic human right
  • raising public awareness of the importance and effectiveness of preserving and responsibly using our planet's precious water resources

Water is an essential component of life

On average 60% of our bodies are water - in some people it can be as high as 70% - and these levels must be maintained for good health, and our very survival.  

Every human being should have ready access to clean, safe drinking water as a basic human "right".  However, approximately one in 10 people on our planet are still denied this right.

That's a staggering 650 million people who are at daily risk of ill-health, disease and death from either dehydration or from drinking contaminated water because they have no other option.

It is a tragedy; it is a scandal; it is a great failing of the international community...


But it is also the inspiration for many fantastic charitable organisations and projects across the globe which are, day-by-day, bringing new water supplies to outlying communities and reducing the number of people denied their right to water.

It is also essential that the 90% of us lucky enough to have clean, safe water flowing out of our taps understand the fragility of this resource.


Whichever side of the "global warming" fence you sit on, our planet is gradually getting warmer


The result is that sea levels are rising, leading to increased contamination of fresh water with saline water, and temperatures are rising, with increased evaporation from fresh water lakes and reservoirs.

The industrial revolutions of giants such as China, India, Brazil, etc - added to the existing pollution in the "west" - is leading to rapidly increased pollution of fresh water supplies from rivers running past factories to the clouds passing overhead, and are increasing the destruction of rain forests.

 

None of us can rely on clean, safe water continuing to flow from our taps


We must learn to conserve, and we must learn how to reduce pollution.

There has been a revolution in the recycling of both industrial and household waste in the "developed" world in recent decades - a similar revolution is needed to preserve our water supplies.

At Water Incorporated, we seek to be at the forefront of public education in this field
