A study from the Pacific Institute was shown to me by a friend recently and it made me think twice about just assuming tap water in California was perfectly safe. The study, "Human Costs of Nitrate-contaminated Drinking Water in the San Joaquin Valley," really opened my eyes as to what is happening in our state and the detrimental conditions some counties in California have to endure. Having both family and friends littered throughout the San Joaquin Valley, I've made sure to share this invaluable study to all my loved ones who still call the middle of California home so that they may also be aware and take the precautions necessary to lead healthier lives.

The Institute is the operating arm of the CEO water mandate (agenda by the UN Global Compact) and continues to be one of the most influential standards-setting bodies in the International Organization for Standardization. Their influence in Corporate Accountability Standards has pushed water to the forefront of many global companies. Reducing water by the millions of gallons? Yes please! They definitely deserve recognition for their work greening the corporate world.

The Pacific Institute is making great strides in informing the public about the importance of water conservation and treatment. Living in California for most of my life, I never truly had to worry about drought affecting my daily activities. Since following Pacific Institute on Facebook, I have learned many scientifically backed truths about water that impact the public. For example, the article for efficiency against desalination really struck a chord, because it just makes sense scientifically and economically. Peter Gleick's efforts in exposing problems in our water supply are indispensable. This information is essential for public knowledge to help preserve our water so that we can continue to have 'quality and quantity' for generations to come. I am glad we have this great non-profit to watch our backs.

It's hard to see anything wrong about this organization, but if there were something to change I would increase exposure to the public so more people would be informed.

The Pacific Institute continues to be a thought leader on issues of water, particularly in CA. Their report on the 2010 waterbond provided evidence necessary for legislators to effectively plan out CA water management and reassess proposed policies. The people who work here approach water management in a meticulous and non-partisan way, working to improve and sustain CA water for future generations. Enjoy and appreciate their work!

The work the Community Strategies Program has done in West Oakland and the Contra Costa County has positively affected the health and sustainability of these communities. The CSSJ Program's combined effort with other environmental advocacy and social justice groups has provided the resources to educate community members and make changes in Freight Transport regulations and policy. Thanks for cleaning up the neighborhood!

Pacific Institute's work in the international communities have empowered women and increased access to clean water for several communities in India, etc. Their collaboration with other sustainable non-profits abroad deepens the understanding and knowledge gained from community surveys and they continue to be one of the world's leading green non-profits in the water sector. Kudos to them, keep up the good work PI!

I became familiar with the Pacific Institute in 2010 when working on a research paper regarding water quality in California. PI's work became a reoccurring reference for me, and I was impressed (and envious) of their robust research. President Peter Gleick is a leader in the field, and I am happy to know that his team is dedicated to protecting our most precious resource.

With water shortages becoming more prevalent in developing areas, it has become crucial to find real-world solutions to these issues. Pacific Institute has already helped reduce water stress in low-income communities and has become a key part of leading the world into a new era of sustainability. Despite their small team, they have reached around the world to recommend solutions and took aim an correcting environmental injustice. I'm highly pleased with the work that Pacific Institute has accomplished and continues to accomplish to create a more sustainable environment for our world.
