Our Purpose

Each year, one million Californians are exposed to unsafe drinking water. Approximately 300 water systems – spanning every region of the state – fail to meet safe water standards. Contaminated water is a public health disaster – putting Californians at risk for cancer, birth defects, heart disease, diabetes and infant mortality.,

This solution provides the source of funding needed to maintain safe, affordable water systems that serve our most vulnerable communities up and down the state.
