March 11, every year, everywhere. The World Plumbing Council invites the world to celebrate the importance of plumbing to world health. A YouTube Video, poster contest, the opportunities to celebrate just go on and on. And green building technology and their poor child *greywater* owes much to the dedication of the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).
The Rainbow Water Coalition's tribute to World Plumbing Day? A painted ceramic of a *plumber* purchased this past year in Gubbio, Italy, famous for the funivia, the palio, and the *Gubbio layer* - a sedimentary layer enriched in iridium exposed by a roadcut outside of town that marks the boundary between the Cretaceous and Tertiary geological periods roughly 65 million years ago.
