Hach invites Northern Colorado to the 2017 Hach Walk for Water on May 6th, 2017 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at Loveland High School in Loveland, CO. The Hach Walk for Water is designed to raise community awareness regarding the global water crisis and collect donations to provide sustainable water treatment systems for struggling communities throughout the world. The Walk simulates the journey over a billion people across the globe, mostly women and children, take every day just to collect water — water that’s frequently unsanitary and unsafe for consumption.
