Campaign Addresses California Drinking Water Crisis
PWQA, Community Water Center bring safe drinking water solutions to disadvantaged communities
The Pacific Water Quality Assn. (PWQA) is donating $2,500 to the Community Water Center (CWC) to assist it in addressing the unsafe drinking water crises in California's disadvantaged communities.
CWC is an advocacy group with a mission to work toward all communities having access to safe, clean, affordable water. It acts as a catalyst for community-driven water solutions through organizing, education and advocacy in California's San Joaquin Valley. CWC helps build strategic grassroots programs to address water challenges in disadvantaged communities. This includes many small, rural, low-income communities with higher than average immigrant populations. Since opening its doors in 2006, CWC has worked with local residents from 82 California communities (69 in the southern San Joaquin Valley) to improve access to safe, clean and affordable water for their residents.
