World of Water’s move from blogs, leaflets, books and live performance, to podcasts and movies.

We are converting a building at our Field Centre into a small animation/ film studio and Helen’s painting a green screen as I type this in readiness for our first Zoom meeting with Ffilm Cymru on 29th July 2020.

Through sharing stories, globally, our campaign will add our support to all those working to clean up the global water habitat for the sustainable future needed by every living creature.

We have dozens of animated shorts and documentaries to make. Each will need individual input and team strength. To help in one of our charity’s films, please get in touch with us at the World of Water Field Centre and have your say.

Water Supply and Sewage

As far as we understand, current water treatment methods like Oxidation with Hypochlorous Acid or peracetic acid and inactivation by ultraviolet irradiation, as well as chlorine, are enough to kill Covid-19 but the virus can remain infectious for several days in sewage and drinking water.

Sneezing and Coughing

(Video presented by Mathematical physicist Lydia Bourouiba, head of the Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission Laboratory at MIT)

If you feel a sneeze coming, use the bend of your arm to catch it or clothing and not your hands as hands tranfer the virus onto hand rails, handles and shop packaging .  A sneeze can also travels over 10mph so can easily project any virus, carrying up to 100,000 microscopic water droplets around a lift or small room. That’s why meetings should be outdoors for extra safety.

A cough can travels over 5mph and transfer around 3,000 little water droplets into the air if not stopped by a tissue or face mask. Use both,

So we all #staysafe as possible, we have decided to close our field centre in Wales and note that Welsh Water has closed its sites, reservoirs and lakes to all members of the public (including walking, sailing, angling and any land or water-based activities).  Updates from Dŵr Cymru Cyf, Welsh Water at https://www.dwrcymru.com/en/Covid19.aspx

We hope you’ll visit our tweets at https://twitter.com/@Worldof_Water and say hello online until this virus is under more control.
