Support the Healthy H20 Act!

Will you volunteer to help us pass the bipartisan Healthy H2O Act? As many of you are aware the Clean Water for All Initiative (CW4A) – rebranded as the Healthy H2O Act (S.4081 / H.R. 8018), has been introduced in both chambers of Congress by Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Representative Chellie Pingree (D-ME),and Representative David Rouzer (R-NC).  We are calling on you to promote this bipartisan initiative through grassroots advocacy and engage with Representatives and Senators in your state.

The legislation authorizes a new grant program at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that would cover costs of water quality testing and the purchase, installation and maintenance of POU/POE water filtration products certified by an ANSI-accredited body. Assistance would go directly to individuals including renters, licensed child-care facilities, non-profits, and local governments. In addition to WQA, more than 20 organizations now support the bill, including the National Ground Water Association, The Water Council, NSF International, IAPMO, the American Supply Association, the Water Systems Council, the Water Well Trust and the Groundwater Foundation.

Background: WQA launched the “Clean Water for All” task force, whose goal was to work directly with policymakers to craft legislation that will help provide safe drinking water to all Americans, especially those who have been overlooked by federal and state funding. This longstanding effort culminated in the introduction of S. 4081 & H.R. 8018, the Healthy Drinking Water Affordability Act (Healthy H2O Act) in both the U.S. House and Senate. The task force was essential in workshopping the legislative language.
