Issues

California is the Golden State. But after representing unlimited opportunity to generations of Americans, our state is also now home to hundreds of thousands without access to the most basic life necessity: clean water.

Surveying the Problem

• Upwards of 300 public water systems in California are out of compliance with drinking water standards

• As many as 1 in 4 schools in the Central Valley have been impacted by unsafe drinking water


• The red stars represent out-of-compliant systems

Public Awareness

A 2017 poll by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates found intense concern about the potential for drinking water contamination, and strong support for efforts by state and local government to address it.

• 85% of Californians would be extremely or very concerned if their drinking water were contaminated.

• 72% would be willing to pay to fix drinking water problems.

• 71% of Californians think we should invest in infrastructure to ensure the safety of our drinking water.

• Californians are concerned about safe drinking water not only in their communities but across the state.
