Xylem Watermark is proud to kick off our annual Global Month of Service in October - an entire month dedicated to volunteerism and raising awareness for the necessary improvements to clean water access around the world. Since 2016, Xylem employees have come together in October to participate in activities across the globe with one common mission – to provide and protect safe water resources for communities in need and to educate people about water issues.

During this month, we encourage all Xylem employees to volunteer in their communities, and we look forward to seeing the impact they have. Our sites are off to great start, with many exciting events already happening. On October 1st, seven of our employees in Axminster, UK started their Month of Service by volunteering at Magdalen Farm. The farm offers education on sustainability and healthy living to children and adults with special needs. Xylem employees planted vegetables, made raised vegetable beds and fed pigs. Thank you for your hard work in participating in such an innovative project!
