Mike Ramos is Director of Engineering for Xylem’s Godwin Pumps. How does this connect him to the famous cave rescue of a Thai boys’ football team – and other major news events around the world?
In Whaley Bridge, UK, a dam collapses, sending 300 million gallons of water flooding into the streets.
In Dubai, unprecedented rainwater causes a series of floods.
And in Los Angeles where a fifth of the city’s water pipes were installed before 1931, a section of the sewers is on the brink of collapse.
In such cases, and many more around the globe, Xylem steps in, working with our customers every day to protect their communities from severe and often unexpected water challenges.
