As part of this year’s Make Your Mark 30 Day Challenge, 60 employees from Xylem’s Shanghai site visited Nanhui Kwai Yuen Farm for a tree planting activity. As a team, they successfully planted 35 holly saplings at the farm. The volunteers ended the tree-planting activity by writing wishes for the trees on cards and placing them on branches. 

Later in the afternoon, the participants left the farm to visit a Xylem Flygt TOP pump station, the world's first self-cleaning integrated pumping station. Flygt TOP pump stations combine the most advanced submersible sewage pumps with the most extensive pumping station design experience, and configure remote intelligent monitoring equipment that can be left unattended 24 hours a day. This tool has made a huge difference to the Garden Village, which is close to two rivers and particularly susceptible to waterlogging during the rainy season. In 2017, the government waterlogging reconstruction project introduced a Xylem Flygt TOP station into the community, completely solving the problems that had plagued residents for decades.
