Public Water Systems Nationwide
(Note: After entering your zip or just zooming in as close as the map gets to your area, be sure to click on your actual "dot" to verify whether your city is in fact the one associated with that particular dot [can be tricky as the map doesn't zoom in for pinpoint accuracy, and so some dots are rather small]. For example, the city 7 miles north of me is named on the map, but the "dot" is located on the wrong side of a major waterway, and, when I clicked on it, the name came up of the water system that serves the town/district that I know to be on that other side of the waterway.)
(Note: The Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS) contains information about public water systems and their violations of EPA's drinking water regulations, as reported to EPA by the states. These regulations establish maximum contaminant levels, treatment techniques, and monitoring and reporting requirements to ensure that water systems provide safe water to their customers. This search will help you to find your drinking water supplier and view its violations and enforcement history since 1993.)
