Frequent Questions

Is it legal for a public water system to charge for the water they provide despite the water being in violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act?

The Safe Drinking Water Act does not address this issue. Local and state authorities might handle payment concerns. Contact your state water program by following this link (http://water.epa.gov/drink/local/) and clicking on the appropriate state to locate their contact information.
