Under the Safe Drinking Water Act , the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets standards to keep drinking water safe. These standards apply to public systems that provide water to almost everyone in the United States at some point in their lives. The SDWA provides a framework to help EPA, states, tribes, and water systems work together to make sure water is safe to drink.
