    The Clean Water Ambassador Initiative is a statewide effort designed to improve transparency and communication concerning water quality in Michigan. Clean Water Ambassadors play a vital role in ensuring that drinking water programs and resources are accessible and effective.

    Clean Water Ambassadors help by:

    • Supporting drinking water efforts in Michigan by providing recommendations about how state agencies can improve education and outreach materials.
    • Spreading the word through social media and other channels about water quality information and resources available to residents in their communities.
    • Identifying communities with water quality issues that may need support with outreach to ensure that residents are aware of recommendations to protect public health.
    • Supporting new legislation that will help improve drinking water quality in Michigan by reaching out to their local elected officials.

    There are approximately 150 Clean Water Ambassadors across Michigan. Any residents above the age of 18 years old are invited to serve as an Ambassador. Clean Water Ambassadors have diverse backgrounds and lived experiences to ensure that our water efforts are inclusive and accessible to Michigan residents.
