Are you ready for World Water Day this year? Each year, we celebrate World Water Day as a way for individuals to come together and learn about the current water crisis in the world.
Created by the UN General Assembly in 1993, this special day has a unique goal, which is to ensure clean water for everyone in the world by 2030. Some other things you should know about it include:
Each year, World Water Day has a theme. This year, the theme is wastewater. Everyone on earth creates wastewater, whether it’s from your home, neighborhood or city, wastewater is always a factor. Unfortunately, in many cases, wastewater is not properly treated. This means that the water leads to pollution as it flows back into nature and contributes to, even more, waste.
UN-Water created a series of Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 that will help lead to the main goal of clean water for all by 2030. This year, the goal is to halve wastewater produced. The best way to do this is by creating better treatment solutions and reusing the water when possible. Most wastewater can be used in irrigation or with cooling systems.
Wastewater is not the only issue we are facing. It’s estimated that 663 million people in the world are without clean water near their homes. For us in The United States, it may be difficult to fathom, but for many people living in poverty, their reality consists of trekking many miles and waiting in lineups to get a jug of clean water.
For many other people, this is not even available, and they are forced to use contaminated water to drink, cook, and clean with. This also leads to illness and famine around the world.
You may be wondering what can be done to help these people, which is exactly why World Water Day exists. Additionally, there are numerous small changes you can make to your home and lifestyle in order to conserve more water and help reduce waste.
For starters, you can make sure the tap is turned off as you brush your teeth or wash your hands. Fixing any leaking pipes or faucets will also reduce waste and taking baths instead of showers will also save water.
We also recommend doing things like capturing rainwater to water your plants or garden. Other, more drastic measures include installing a water-conserving or dual-flush toilet or installing a greywater reuse system if your area allows it.

Raul was at my place in less than an hour after I called on a Saturday. Raul was very professional and courteous and got the job done. Very great and effective service! Thanks Raul! Bill|Newport Beach, CA
Raul De La Luz provided prompt and courteous service in addressing my plumbing issue. Unplugged the toilet and was able to recover (avoiding possible future plugging) the cleaning materials inadvertently flushed away! Thank you. Bob C|Newport Beach, CA
I needed help unclogging my shower drainage. The technician, Mr. Raul De La Luz was very polite, professional, and efficient. He took care of the issue in less than half hour. And when he was done, the area was clean and back to the way it was before he came. I am very satisfied with his service. M. Tran|Irvine, CA
We are very satisfied with their service. Erick is very easy to deal with. He constantly update us regarding his arrival time. We had a floor leak to which he is supposed to detect the slab leak. At the moment he arrived at our place, my husband already found the leak so we don't need his services. We are willing to pay Erick a dispatch fee but he said don't worry about it. He also gave us some advises about how to deal with our leaks. He is very professional. Will definitely use Dial One Soneshine again. Han C.

Having moved to the OC recently, we were in need of an HVAC electrician. We found Dial One Sonshine online and called to set up an appointment. Dustin arrived on time and proceeded to replace our old thermostat with a new one. Once it was installed, he checked to see that everything (heat, A/C, fan only) worked properly. We were so happy with the results that we signed up for an annual checkup for the furnace (fall) and air conditioner (spring). Count us among the many satisfied customers Chuck R.
John was amazing and totally helped us out. Nicole was curtious when I called to make the appointment and very helpful. Melinda called us 30 minutes before John showed up, letting us know he was on his way. Perfect service! Michelle L
Shawn from Dial One was awesome as always, on time and always a pleasure to work with. If you need service for HVAC, your water heater, call Dial One. Branden B.
