Regulations for Drinking Water and Wastewater
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which celebrates its 30th anniversary on December 16, 2004, is the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans' drinking water. Under SDWA, EPA sets standards for drinking water quality and oversees the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement those standards. If you have a technical question we can help.
