The Clean Water Campaign
How to Take Action
We need you! The Clean Water Campaign is always looking for additional Water Warriors – the advocates, volunteers, and supporters of our work.
Our top priority is securing sustainable, dedicated funding to improve and protect Delaware’s waterways and drinking water sources. Earlier this year, Governor Carney and legislative leaders proposed a $50 million investment in clean water, $3.6 million of which would have been dedicated to low-income and underserved communities. Our Campaign recognizes that this is no longer possible due to the challenges that we are facing from the COVID-19 pandemic, but want to stress that investments in safe and clean drinking water remain vital during this public health crisis.
This year’s legislative session ended on June 30. Thanks to your calls and emails to legislators, the Bond Bill included $13 million for clean water funding, with $1.6 million allocated for low-income and underserved communities, and $5 million each for Open Space and Farmland Preservation programs. That’s a total of $23 million for clean water and conservation.
Thank you for your unwavering support and for keeping clean water a priority when many issues are calling for our attention and advocacy. We will continue to push for a dedicated and sustainable clean water funding mechanism next legislative session in January 2021!
