Significance of World Plumbing Day

WPC established World Plumbing Day in 2010. The International Plumbing Council plays an important role in promoting the link between good quality plumbing, environmental sustainability, health, and economic prosperity. On this day to share the awareness and importance, various activities like seminars are conducted by various institutions all around the world.
