“When the well is dry, we know the worth of water” – Benjamin Franklin.
Water means different things to different people.
How is water important to your home and family life, your livelihood, your cultural practices, your wellbeing, your local environment?
In households, schools and workplaces, water can mean health, hygiene, dignity and productivity.
In cultural, religious and spiritual places, water can mean a connection with creation, community and oneself.
In natural spaces, water can mean peace, harmony and preservation.
Today, water is under extreme threat from a growing population, increasing demands of agriculture and industry, and the worsening impacts of climate change.

By recording - and celebrating - all the different ways water benefits our lives, we can value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone.
To all of us at Waterline water is our way of life. In many ways we work to preserve it, source it responsibly, and work hard to mitigate environmental impacts on the water sources within our scope. Our dedication to responsible water use goes beyond our day to day work but continues in our homes.
At Waterline, water "is" our business.
