Millions of people suffer and die every year because they don’t have the most basic necessity freely available to them. Help us change that.
We have a simple mission: to give more people in the world clean water to drink. While this is a trivial quest in a developed country, without governmental support or social infrastructure, it can be incredibly difficult. Water Charity aims to help communities
develop sustainable, ecological, simple, easy-to-maintain systems to get clean drinking water to everyone who needs it.
Fighting American Water's Rate Hike
LI CAWS is party to New York American Water's proceedings with the Public Service Commission, preparing a case in opposition to its plan to raise our rates by 8.3%. We are fighting the constitutionality of a municipality providing one resident with public water while denying a neighbor the same right to the same service.

LI CAWS is spearheading a campaign to rid our drinking water of lead and other contaminants.
Cleaning up the Grumman Plume
LI CAWS is calling for the immediate clean-up of the Northrop Grumman/US Navy plume, protecting the quality and sustainability of our aquifer.
