Thousands are expected to benefit from campaign
About a month after Ethan Wolfe, a 6-year-old Phoenix boy, heard that people in Haiti had to drink "dirty water" every day, more than 4,600 people filled emptied water bottles with dollar bills and change as part of the Dirty Water campaign at Palmcroft Baptist Church.
The "Dirty Water fasting" campaign asked people to drink nothing but water for a month and donate the money they would have paid during that time for coffee, soda, juices and other drinks. The most recent count puts the collection at more than $105,000.

Approximately 6,000 public water systems will begin monitoring 28 chemicals and two viruses beginning in 2013
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently published a list of 28 chemicals and two viruses that approximately 6,000 public water systems will monitor from 2013 to 2015 as part of the agency’s unregulated contaminant monitoring program.
The program collects data for contaminants suspected to be present in drinking water but that do not have health-based standards set under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
Funding will go toward drinking water and wastewater systems and private well owners
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced last week that it will provide up to $15 million in funding for training and technical assistance to small drinking and wastewater systems, defined as systems that serve fewer than 10,000 people, and private well owners. The funding will help provide water system staff with training and tools to enhance system operations and management practices, and supports EPA’s continuing efforts to protect public health, restore watersheds and promote sustainability in small communities.
