Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
The Safe Drinking Water Act regulates drinking water to prevent any pollutants that may be of harm to human health. The goal is to ensure the safety of the public water supply.
The original SDWA was passed in 1974 because of public concerns over drinking water quality and was most recently amended in 1996.
