WATER IS LOVE

Water now allocates two projects a year to under-served communities both locally and internationally. We create access by providing high quality drinking water by donating our time, resources, and sustainable technologies to enhance the health and quality of life to communities who are in need.

WATERNOW'S CURRENT FUNDRAISING PROJECTS

Clean Water Initiative for Dinè, Wheatfields Community

In this Navajo (Diné) Nation community in Wheatfields Lake, Arizona, approximately 1000 people experience poor quality drinking water. There’s an abundance of water rights and a rich cultural history,
yet a lack of water flow which has caused lake reservoirs to dry up. Contaminants have resulted in illnesses that have been reported in the community. Help us help this strong, beautiful community with clean drinking water!

PAST WATERNOW PROJECTS

LAKE BACALAR, MEXICO 

Conservation in areas where clean water is scare such as Kunya, is paramount. We share numerous techniques for water conservation, such as rainwater catchment, grey water recycling, irrigation methods, water saving faucets and mindful water and permaculture practices. Another example of our success came a few months back, in December of 2017, WaterNow responded to a call from the state of Quintana Roo Mexico, located on the eastern part of the Yucatán Peninsula not far from the city of Bacalar.
In 2015 Mexico’s environmental protection agency issued an “urgent” call for local authorities to stop sewage and waste discharge into the fresh water lake of Bacalar. In response to this crisis, WaterNow installed a 3-stage water purification system and UV filter system for bacteria and helped the health of the participants gathering at the lake.

 

On behalf of The Call of The Water-XV Vision Council Guardians of the Earth, I would like to recommend Karuna Warren and WaterNow as an organization that is truly committed to create a world with access to clean water for all. In their mission to bring sustainable drinking water to people with limited possibilities, as well as support proactive environmental advocates.

WaterNow donated and installed a water filter system that allowed more than 1600 participants from 27 countries and representatives of a dozen indigenous nations, to have potable water throughout the weeklong gathering in the pristine, yet imminently threatened, Caribbean lagoon. Karuna also gave an important presentation on water sustainability and technology. We are very grateful for the alliance forged with WaterNow and their participation in our gathering and community.

The water filter system they donated will be used in future events and showcased as an example of efficient, cost effective, and easily actionable steps to use and care for water more appropriately.

In June, 2018 WaterNow responded to a call from the organizers of The Meadows in the Mountains Conscious Art & Film Festival. This festival brings crowds of over 3,000 individuals annually and during the previous year’s festival numerous people fell ill due to bacteria and parasites coming from the water tanks. WaterNow triaged the situation and installed a UV water filter, and a 3-stage purification system along with rainwater catchment and solar pumps. The sustainable system was well received and saved in plastic consumption, hauling water, and not to mention the chemical free water that received many accolades and will prevent future outbreaks.

HUNI KUIN OF THE AMAZON

The children of the Huni Kuin (Kaxinawa) Village make a three day journey to collect and carry water back to their homes. They go without pure water access due to commercial mining and logging production upstream which taints the flowing river.
WaterNow raised $7k for the Huni Kuin tribe which went to state of the art water filter systems (restructuring and 7 stage purification) , water storage tanks, rainwater catchment, travel, tools to dig their well deeper, submersible pump and a water drinking station.

STANDING ROCK TRIBE OF NORTH DAKOTA

Plastic water bottles are the current sole source of hydration for the First Nations of North Dakota. The owner of Sacred Stone Land called WaterNow to create clean water systems on the and.
WaterNow raised $12,500  for Standing Rock which went to water filter units, transportation, and green energy systems such as wind turbine and mobile batteries for power and wifi boosts.

HEARTLAND VILLAGE OF GRASS VALLEY

Heartland is an emerging ecological village in Grass Valley, California. They called WaterNow to install and bring structured water to its land. WaterNow installed structured water units and UV light disinfection to bring activated pure water to the community.  Their testimonial says it all – “The Water tastes so much better and is greatly enhanced in quality, thank you!”

GREEN SCHOOL OF BALI

WaterNow journeyed to Bali, Indonesia to present an educational water workshop at New Earth/ Ancient Futures festival with the Bali Water Protection Program (IDEP). We aligned with IDEP to provide support for their program of  building rehabilitated wells to stop saltwater intrusion.
WaterNow also collaborated with the Green School, an internationally renowned holistic educational institute.WaterNow helped them to install a restructuring water unit for their kitchen Kulu farm, plus advised them on a sustainable PV solar and river turbine interface. The water system serves 450 children and teachers every year.  We plan to return to Bali in the near future to resume these important initiatives.
