Leading The Industry in Drinking Water Compliance
Regulated water utilities diligently work with state and federal officials to ensure that all water quality standards are maintained, and that drinking water is clean and safe.
The California State Water Resources Control Board and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) are charged with enforcing state and federal drinking water standards, which are the same for both regulated and municipal water providers.
In fact, regulated water utilities consistently lead the entire water industry in drinking water compliance. These water companies have an excellent compliance record when it comes to violations and fines of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), according to a 2011 report by Water Intelligence Magazine, which analyzed U.S. EPA data on serious SDWA violators.
