What We Do

RAIN's objective is to aid in the protection of our rivers and improve public health by making source water the top priority. With our Early Warning Spill Detection System we aim to alert water treatment facilities about contamination before it can spread downstream. We hope to educate the public on source water and help everyone understand how important water is to our health and in our every day lives.
