Water Wells for Americans With No Water Supply

The Water Well Trust (WWT) is a 501(c)3 organization created by the Water Systems Council to provide a clean water supply to American families living without access to a precious resource most of us take for granted.

The WWT and its partners build wells for low‐income families nationwide that need safe drinking water. There are many excellent organizations working to provide safe drinking water to people in need in developing countries. The Water Well Trust is the only national nonprofit organization helping Americans get access to a clean, safe water supply.

We serve Americans living primarily in rural, unincorporated areas or minority communities that may be isolated and difficult to reach. We assist low‐income families that cannot afford to pay for public water supplies, and those who live in areas where the extension of public water supplies to serve them doesn’t make economic sense…for them, for the public water supply owners, for federal, state or local funding sources.

Today in America, there are millions of people who are forced to haul water or to use contaminated water sources. Individual wells and small, shared wells are the best and most cost‐effective way to provide safe drinking water to these American homes.
