WATER

Catalyst is committed to ensuring all Virginians have equitable access to safe, trusted, affordable, fluoridated water and that it's their beverage of choice.

Water Equity Taskforce

The Water Equity Taskforce ensures, through policy change, education, and collaborative partnership that everyone in Virginia has safe, trusted, affordable, fluoridated water and that it's their beverage of choice.

Stakeholders are actively implementing the recommendations through workgroups that:

  • Address race and income inequities
  • Improve water literacy
  • Fund systems and infrastructure
  • And encourage water consumption.

Community Water Fluoridation Protection

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declares water fluoridation as “one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century.” In Virginia, nearly 6.7 million Virginians benefit from receiving optimally fluoridated drinking water. Catalyst engages partners to advocate and protect community water fluoridation in the Commonwealth.
