Private Water Network Expansion & Partnerships
Established in December 2019, we strive to continue the expansion of the PWN. The PWN is a community intended to represent individuals from every state, tribal, local, and territorial jurisdiction across the country. We also welcome individuals from other state agencies, federal agencies, national organizations, academia, and more.
We focus efforts on building partnerships with agencies, organizations, and academia who are also focused on protecting private water and environmental public health.
The Private Water Network is a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
