Drinking water utilities in the United States (U.S.) and throughout the world face the challenge of providing water of good quality to their consumers. Frequently, the water supply is derived from surface water or groundwater sources that may be subject to naturally occurring or accidentally introduced contamination. In other cases, routine upstream waste discharges or purposeful contamination of the water can diminish the quality of the water. The treated water may be transmitted through a network of corroded or deteriorating pipes. All of these factors can result in degradation in the quality of the water delivered to customers. In the U.S., drinking water quality has to comply with federal, state, and local regulations. This is based on selected physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has promulgated many drinking water standards under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1974. These rules and regulations require that public water systems (PWSs) meet specific guidelines and/or numeric standards for water quality.
