On March 22, 2021, World Water Day celebrates the value of water and raises awareness of its scarcity. It’s the perfect moment to ask: what does water mean to you?

At Diehl Metering, water is an integral part of who we are. Our story began with water back in 1862, when we started up as a foundry producing fittings for water installations. Since then, high-quality water meters have been a mainstay of our research and production departments, and are now the cornerstone of our smart water solutions.

It’s sometimes easy to take water for granted, but we should never forget it has a pivotal role for every one of us. Water represents up to 60% of our body weight and is integral for life everywhere on the planet. We use it in our homes and in agriculture and industry. It is vital for health and social wellbeing, for a well-balanced ecosystem, for the good of our planet. Whatever happens to water has an impact on every one of us.

That’s why World Water Day is an opportunity to celebrate the value of water and to renew our efforts to save it for future generations. A stable and steady supply of water is the backbone of every nation – yet 2.2 billion people around the world live without access to safe water. It’s up to every one of us to help make a difference.

At Diehl Metering, we are committed to empowering customers, consumers and communities to use water more efficiently and more responsibly. We design our solutions and services to optimize the way natural resources are managed. In this way, we help people everywhere to reduce waste and contribute to the sustainability of the planet.

To mark World Water Day, join us in asking yourself what water means to you. What do you most value about it, and where is it most important to you? Above all, let’s all remember that water takes care of us – so we should take care of it.
