Is My Water Safe?

There are no government regulations regarding individual well water supplies. Public water supplies are regulated through standards set by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These regulations fall under two categories:

  • Primary drinking water standards
  • Secondary drinking water standards
