The difference rcap makes

RCAP works in small, rural communities across the United States, its territories, and in tribal areas. Most of the communities where RCAP works are low-income and have a population under 2,500.

RCAP’s assistance enables communities to provide a reliable, safe and clean supply of drinking water and a sanitary wastewater disposal system. The health of residents is protected, the environment is cared for, and the economies of whole communities are supported by this critical infrastructure.

  • 153,000 public water systems in the US

  • 400 billion gallons of water used in the US each day

  • 1 Million miles of water pipeline and aqueducts in the US and Canada, enough to circle the earth 40 times
