We are Number Four!
April 07, 2016
We all live downstream! Most people care about clean water and want to see it protected. But we should never take clean water for granted. Public health risks from lead in drinking water are drawing national attention — along with heightened focus on other drinking water challenges — in the wake of problems in Flint, Michigan.
It’s time for a new approach. It’s time to Put Drinking Water First. With your help, Clean Water Fund is working to do just that:
- Making sure Flint residents can rely on their tap water again and that those responsible for the crisis are held fully accountable.
- Ensuring that federal lead in drinking water regulations protect public health and encourage solutions that remove lead from contact with drinking water.
- Pushing to increase water infrastructure funding and other investments needed to modernize drinking water systems and protect public health.
- Raising awareness about drinking water and organizing to make drinking water protection, treatment, and distribution much higher priorities for government at all levels.
Putting Drinking Water First – exactly what officials didn’t do in Flint – is about making smarter choices that will provide numerous public health, natural resource protection, and community benefits. Putting Drinking Water First means protecting water and health from watershed to water tap. Join with Clean Water Fund. Help us create a clean water future for everyone.
