World Water Day 2022: Groundwater - Making the Invisible Visible 

Our staff around the world are showing support for the United Nations' World Water Day 2022. Held every March 22 since 1993, World Water Day provides an opportunity to learn about water-related issues and inspire change.

"We must do our part in advancing this conversation. This is a great opportunity to help elevate the importance of water, sanitation and sustainability, and take action to make a difference in our communities," said Glen Ellmers, HDR's global water practice president.

This year's World Water Day theme is "Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible." Groundwater is out of sight, but it is a hidden treasure that enriches all our lives. We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.

“This year’s World Water Day theme resonates with anyone who treasures the environment,” said Doug DeCesare, HDR’s waste practice director, which includes hazardous waste and remediation. “Groundwater touches everything — the health of our communities depend on it.”
