IAPMO: Plumbing and Public Health

Plumbing systems in North America are so advanced, most people never think about the fact that flushing the toilet actually saves your life. In other parts of the world, diarrheal disease linked to a lack of safe sanitation kills more than 400,000 people annually, half of whom are children.

Even in the developed world, when systems fail or a pandemic looms, the public health aspect of plumbing takes center stage. Think Flint, Michigan. SARS. COVID-19. Water sources can be rendered non-potable by poor plumbing practices.
