Safe Drinking Water Act Federal Regulations  

The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) was established to protect public health by regulating the nation's public drinking water supply. The SDWA authorizes the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) to set national health-based standards for drinking water to protect against both naturally-occurring and man-made contaminants that may be found in drinking water. Working together, federal agencies, state agencies and water system personnel make sure that these standards are met. This course will introduce water supply system personnel to the most recent SDWA revisions, including Maryland regulations, and the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. Additionally, participants will review the 1996 amendments which greatly enhanced the existing law by recognizing source water protection, operator training, funding for water system improvements, and public information as important components of safe drinking water. Information about updated monitoring requirements, recordkeeping, emergency planning and response, and certification will be covered. Transcript available.
