SLBS joins the International Community in marking World Water Day


The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards joins the International Standards Organization (ISO) in marking World Water Day.

In a statement released today, ISO is encouraging the world to pay attention to the usefulness of standards in addressing the sustainable use of water.

This year’s theme for World Water Day is “Why Waste Water.” This is one in a series of International Standards published by ISO - ISO 16075 Water reuse, provides guidelines for treated wastewater use in irrigation projects.  This ISO said in a release are some of the ways ISO standards will continue to respond to the world’s wastewater challenges.

According to the standards body “Treating and reusing wastewater in agriculture can not only provide an oasis in the desert, it can boost economies and save communities.

Director of the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards, Dr. Mkabi Walcott, says it is important that interventions like that, in the development and publication of standards, are allowing small economies to share in the innovations which standards encourage to sustain livelihoods. 

Water she says is one of the most critical components of life and addressing challenges to water conversation will be strictly promoted thought the standards promotion agenda of the SLBS.

ISO in confirming a pledge to health and safety said the goal of “Ensuring universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030 requires that we invest in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities and encourage hygiene at every level. Let’s not forget to invest in ISO International Standards – after all, we have 500-plus standards to make the water cycle work better for every living thing on the planet.”
