Drinking Water Equity in the Bay Area


water spicket

As the drought across California worsens, low income and racial minority communities struggle to access safe, reliable and affordable drinking water. This constant strain often prevents impacted communities from fulfilling what should be simple, everyday needs: cooking, drinking and sanitation. California’s annual Drinking Water Needs Assessment, prepared by the State Water Resources Control Board, identifies failing water systems that disproportionately impact communities of color — and the results are eye-opening. Join us as we dive into learning more about the issues facing water equity and how the Bay Area can address these inequities to provide accessible drinking water to all residents.
