EPA Drinking Water Audits

The EPA carries out audits of public water supplies.  These audits are an important way of checking how the water supplier is performing and ensuring that the Drinking Water Regulations are being complied with.  The EPA audits examine a number of areas which may include the water source, the water treatment works, management of the distribution system, sampling and analytical methods used and consumer contacts about water quality.  When selecting supplies to audit, the EPA adopts a risk-based approach to ensure that the supplies in most need of attention have a greater degree of inspection and enforcement.

Where the EPA finds any deficiencies, recommendations will be made in the audit report as to the actions the water supplier needs to take to put things right.  Most recommendations are quite technical in nature and do not necessarily mean there is an immediate threat to drinking water quality.  The water supplier is required to reply within the timeframe specified in the audit report setting out what it has done or proposes to do, to satisfy those recommended actions.  The EPA tracks the water supplier's progress in carrying out these actions.
