Californians need an ongoing source of sustainable funding to secure safe, clean and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all communities. Until this ongoing source of funding is secured, however, our communities demand immediate investments through the 2016-2017 budget to meet our urgent drinking water needs. It is completely unacceptable that over one million Californians are impacted by unsafe water annually, and we need to act now to address this crisis.
