Complying with Drinking Water Laws

The Drinking Water and Recreational Waters Compliance Section performs sanitary surveys and provides technical assistance to drinking water facilities throughout the State. The Section's goal is to help systems remain in compliance with the State Primary Drinking Water Regulations. This is accomplished by providing regulation information, educating systems on new and upcoming regulations, and offering on-site technical assistance.

Sanitary Surveys

A main tool of the Drinking Water Protection Division is the sanitary survey. Sanitary surveys are performed on all public water systems every one to five years depending on system classification. Based on survey results, the system is rated Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, or Unsatisfactory.
