Xylem Aids in Harvey Disaster Relief

The destruction of Hurricane Harvey hit close to home for Xylem, literally and figuratively. Xylem, a company built of many brands that make a variety of equipment for the water industry, has locations that were in the direct path of the storm and surrounding areas. This was already enough to spur Xylem into hurricane relief action mode, but the company’s dedication to addressing the world’s most urgent water needs further prompted the importance of taking an active role in relief efforts.

As a Xylem brand, OI Analytical is proud of Xylem for stepping up to assist communities in dire need of help. Here’s how we are pulling together as a company to lend a hand:

  1. We’re working to support immediate local response efforts in close coordination with customers, business partners and cities across the region. In advance of the storm, our pump manufacturing brands redeployed dewatering pumps and other critical equipment from across North America, and continue to move more equipment that will be needed for the recovery efforts.

  2. Another key aspect of our rapid response efforts is work by our Tideland Signal team in Houston to provide emergency repair for navigation buoys damaged by the storm – which are critical to maintaining safety for ships operating in the region. In the immediate term, we are contributing to the American Red Cross’ emergency response efforts through Xylem Watermark, our corporate citizenship program. Xylem will double-match all contributions made by its employees to the American Red Cross (up to $10,000 per employee per year for all Watermark donations). Beyond that, we’re evaluating how we can best provide immediate assistance to our local colleagues personally affected by the flooding, as well as to the overall local community.

There are countless ways you can personally use your talents or resources to help your fellow Americans in need. We challenge you to take part in some way to contribute to the overall recovery efforts to help these communities get back on their feet as quickly as possible. Helen Keller says it best: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
