SAFER Drinking Water Program


The State Water Board’s Safe and Affordable Funding for Equity and Resilience (SAFER) drinking water program was designed to ensure Californians who lack safe and affordable drinking water receive it as quickly as possible and that the water systems serving them establish sustainable solutions.

The SAFER drinking water program is helping water systems achieve this goal through a set of tools, funding sources, regulatory authorities, and community outreach and education.
