Working to end the Global Water Crisis

Did you know? 2.1 Billion people around the world lack access to safe water.
That's 1/3 of the world's Population

Burt Process Equipment is committed to helping end the Global Water Crisis through collaboration with customers, supplier partners, and non-profit organizations who are equally committed to the cause. We believe there’s hope for those families around the world who lack access to safe water.


Burt Process Corporate goals align with united nations sustainable development goals

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #6 states: "Access to water and sanitation is a precondition to life and a declared human right. Water is vitally important to sustainable development - health and nutrition, to gender equity and economics."

Burt Process was founded on family values, engineering expertise and a commitment to clean water technology. Today, through our Corporate Goals, we pledge our resources to support the United Nations Initiative to bring clean and safe water to all people around the globe.

Strategic Partners Kristen Kowal from Grundfos and Kevin Moran from Georg Fischer join Steve & Sue Burt to kick off the 2019 Burt Process Walk for Water.

Shown above: Strategic Partners Kristen Kowal from Grundfos and Kevin Moran from Georg Fischer join Steve & Sue Burt to kick off the 2019 Burt Process Walk for Water.

The first annual Burt Process Walk for Water held on October 26, 2019, raised $10,000 for Water Mission, a non-profit organization that provides engineered water solutions to remote communities and disaster relief regions who are in desperate need of clean water.

Our main goal of working with Water Mission is to increase the access to safe water and sanitation solutions. Building a system and completing a successful project aside from basic health provides time for more progressive work, optimized education, improved health and increased productivity throughout the community.

Our donation directly supported Water Mission’s team in Kenya as they responded to the West Pokot landslide disaster that occurred late November 2019. This Catastrophe had displaced 80,000 people and tragically took the lives of 50. Water Mission's team was able to make a well-timed response to the situation and quickly provide supplies, hygiene kits, safe water, and other necessities that are essential to life needed by the families and communities that were left in distress.
