The National Drinking Water Clearinghouse (NDWC) was a public service organization dedicated to helping small communities by collecting, developing, and providing timely information relevant to drinking water issues. NDWC provided free and low-cost publications, products, databases, referrals, and more.
The NDWC was sponsored by the
Rural Utilities Service (RUS), a division of the US Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Program. The
program served as an extension of RUS's commitment to providing technical assistance
to America's small and rural drinking water treatment plants.
