At the end of 2019, we launched Hometown H2o in partnership with Xylem Goulds Water Technology brand, Xylem Watermark and the Water Well Trust.
With a focus on low-income, rural communities, households, and schools, Hometown H2o is designed to provide short and long term solutions to water access issues here in the United States.
In January, we learned that the first opportunity to help was in a family home that was deemed unlivable after the existing shallow well pump failed. Without knowing where we readied our partners and volunteers and waited for our assignment. Shortly after that, we learned we’d be going to Suffolk, VA to help the Crawford family.
