We conducted this review to determine the progress made by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its partners to protect drinking water from contamination from source to consumer. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Amendments of 1996 contain provisions to help States and water systems improve public health protection. The provisions include: Assessing water sources; Certifying system operators; Improving the technical, managerial, and financial capacity of water systems; Providing funding for infrastructure improvements; Providing funding to States; and Keeping the public informed.
