Infiltrator continues partnership with Habitat for Humanity
Infiltrator has donated over 75 septic systems to Habitat homes throughout the United States
ATLANTA (July 31, 2019) — Infiltrator Water Technologies, a manufacturer of decentralized wastewater treatment technology, continues to partner with Habitat for Humanity with the donation of septic systems and training to assist in the nonprofit housing organization’s efforts to create a world where everyone has a decent and affordable place to live.
“We are grateful for the partnership with Infiltrator,” said Lynda Smith, senior director of Corporate Relations for Habitat for Humanity International. “Safe water and sanitation are very important for healthy homes, and the donation of wastewater products and training help us meet this critical need while also helping to keep the houses affordable.”
In 2017, Infiltrator partnered with Habitat for Humanity to provide septic systems annually for Habitat homes throughout the United States. Since then, Infiltrator has donated more than 75 septic systems. Each donation includes a septic tank and drainfield product from Infiltrator’s full line of on-site wastewater products. In addition to donated product, Infiltrator provides local Habitat staff with education around permitting and ongoing maintenance of septic systems.
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Habitat for Humanity,” said Roy Moore, president and CEO of Infiltrator Water Technologies. “In addition to Infiltrator’s product donations, our on-site wastewater industry partners have volunteered installation and design support on some of the Habitat projects that we have been involved with. We’re looking forward to seeing even more involvement from the industry in the future.”
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
