...working for access to safe, affordable and sustainable drinking water for all.



The Chronicles Group, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) Corporation and its mission is to influence critical and effective public policy by educating the people of the world regarding the significant issues facing the 21st century. Its mission's primary objective is for all people to have access to safe, affordable and sustainable drinking water and adequate sanitation with the goal of saving lives now and ensuring a healthy tomorrow for future residence of the earth.

The Chronicles Group feels strongly that in order to achieve this mission, grassroots public information education campaigns must be implemented throughout the world.

Actress Jane Seymour, the documentaries’ narrator, and many other notable and knowledgeable individuals have come together to participate in this public information/education process.


“Running Dry” is a comprehensive public information/education project, established to raise awareness regarding the worsening global humanitarian water crisis.


The project’s centerpieces are two explosive and enlightening in-depth documentaries, “Running Dry” and “The American Southwest: Are We Running Dry?”

Of historical note, the initial documentary RUNNING DRY, led to the enactment of the SENATOR PAUL SIMON WATER FOR THE POOR ACT, which authorizes funding for water and sanitation projects in developing nations.


The project was inspired by former U.S. Senator Paul Simon’s book “Tapped Out: The Coming World Crisis in Water and What We Can Do About It.”
