An estimated 77 million people in Bangladesh have been exposed to toxic arsenic levels in their drinking water since the 1970s.

“Tragically, the people in Bangladesh are being poisoned by toxic arsenic levels in their drinking water,” said Susan Carter, manager of the Pentair Foundation. “The good news is the Ecological Management Foundation is working diligently to change these conditions. Pentair is proud to help positively impact global water quality and we hope to help make a difference across Bangladesh.”
 
Established in 1998, the Pentair Foundation has committed more than US$24 million to strengthen and support communities in which Pentair operates, with a focus on education, water quality and community giving. Through the Foundation, Pentair directs 2% of its pre-tax earnings to charitable organizations annually.
