Updated Safe Water System web site

In honor of World Water Day, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a newly designed and updated Safe Water System Website: http://www.cdc.gov/safewater/index.html (note that the URL has changed). 

The Safe Water System (SWS) protects communities from contaminated water by promoting behavior change and providing affordable and sustainable solutions. It increases access to safe water by helping individuals treat and safely store water in homes, health facilities, and schools.

The SWS includes: 1) household water treatment; 2) safe storage of the treated water; and 3) behavior change communication to improve hygiene, sanitation, and water and food handling practices.
