In California’s Central Valley in the U.S., volunteers are coming together to meet the challenge of delivering water to their rural communities.

Watch this short video to hear from these local water heroes, who share their challenges, hopes and achievements in addressing local water issues.

The Water Leadership Institute, a free bilingual training program hosted by EDF and the Rural Community Assistance Corporation, aims to change that. Learn more through the video.
