New Website Allows Public to Track Compliance Status of Public Water Systems

USEPAThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) released the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) dashboard, a website that presents data about violations and the compliance status of public water systems. The dashboard contains interactive charts and graphs that provide information regarding the compliance of public water systems with federal drinking water regulations, as well as enforcement actions.

The SDWA dashboard is connected to USEPA’s Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) website, which allows users to assess the compliance status of regulated facilities in their communities. Key features of the SDWA dashboard include:

  • Annual statistics and five-year trends for public water systems across the U.S., individual states, reservations and territories, in easy-to-read pie graph and bar chart formats.
  • Users can view various sets of data – including violation history, site visits and enforcement actions – sorted onto one screen.
  • By clicking on a chart, the user can view more detail about the data represented, and can connect to detailed facility reports for individual non-complying systems.
  • All data can be exported, downloaded, and printed.

The website is the latest in a series of online dashboards available through ECHO, including tools for the Clean Water Act’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, the Clean Air Act, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
