(2/6/2014) TUSTIN, Calif. — The Pacific Water Quality Association (PWQA) has announced that it is donating $2,500 to the Community Water Center (CWC) to assist in addressing the unsafe drinking water crises in California’s disadvantaged communities, according to a press release.

The CWC is an advocacy group whose mission is to work towards all communities having access to safe, clean and affordable water by building strategic grassroots programs to address water challenges in disadvantaged communities, noted the release.

“The PWQA is impressed with the good work of the Community Water Center and we applaud their project in Monson, California, which has helped that small community with a useful tool help manage its nitrate contamination problem. As water treatment professionals, we understand the fundamental importance of clean water to our lives,” noted PWQA President John Foley.

The PWQA has also been active with California legislation that will streamline access to the most state of the art water purification devices for all Californian’s while at the same time maintaining compliance with governmental and industry standards, the release reported.

According to the release, many water treatment technologies are available for use in some of the state’s small, disadvantaged communities; however, use of these devices is limited because of existing state regulations.
