While the quality of the water delivered in the cities and towns to the citizens of the United States has received increasing attention in the last couple of years, very little information has been gathered concerning the quality of drinking water available to the public using water systems constructed at Federal facilities. This study is the second in a series on these water systems, the first of which concerned water systems serving recreational facilities operated by the Corps of Engineers. The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the water quality, construction, maintenance, operation, and surveillance of water systems around Bureau of Reclamation reservoirs. The findings of this report will hopefully focus more attention on these facets of water systems to help improve the overall health protection of the public.
