SAFER’s goal is safe and affordable drinking water for all Californians.
SAFER is an advisory board that keeps the State Water Board on track, educated, and accountable toward the public’s needs.
SAFER gives a voice to smaller and disadvantaged communities that might go unnoticed or have trouble receiving help from the California Water Board.
The water board relies on SAFER’s advice and insight on how to best allocate resources from the The SAFER Fund Expenditure Plan, as well as loans and grants from the state and the federal level.
SAFER hosts public meetings four times a year, welcoming anyone and everyone to share concerns or ideas on how to best provide affordable drinking water.
