More than 300 communities and one million Californians are exposed to unsafe drinking water from the taps in their homes, schools, and communities each year. This crisis has gone on for too long. This is a statewide public health crisis, impacting communities across the state, including Los Angeles. For our health and our children's safety, California needs to create a Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund.
Public water systems not meeting federal or state drinking water standards as of May 9, 2018 are marked with a red star. See more information here.
Governor Brown and lawmakers have introduced bipartisan consensus
legislation (SB 844 and SB 845) to solve California’s long-standing drinking water crisis. The legislation builds upon the original proposal for a Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund, with changes made to ensure broad support and effective implementation – because California families with toxic water cannot afford to wait any longer. Take action now to tell your state legislators to support SB 844 and SB 845! See more information here.
Polling shows that more than two-thirds of Californians support this type of solution to our drinking water crisis. Editorial boards at the Sacramento Bee, the Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle also urge legislators to support!
Take action now to join the effort to ensure safe and affordable water for all Californians.
