The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for certifying water supplies serving interstate carriers. Federal authority for certifying water supplies comes from the Interstate Quarantine Regulations to prevent the spread of communicable disease. To accomplish this goal, the Public Health Service Drinking Water Standards--1962, were adopted. A Guide to the Interstate Carrier Water Supply Certification Program, written June 21, 1971, to aid in the interpretation of the Drinking Water Standards, was accepted by the EPA Regions. Since then, however, modifications have occurred in the EPA organizational structure, the interpretation of the Standards, and the EPA reporting forms. This revised Guide reflects the modifications and replaces the 1971 Guide.
