The Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) is the federal law that establishes treatment and safety standards for public drinking water in the United States and is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency. The drinking water standards developed by EPA are health based standards designed to protect water consumers from contaminants that are potential health risks. Our testing protocols are designed to comply with these standards.
The treatment plants that provide our water collect hundreds of water samples per each year. Sunrise Water collects at least 50 water samples every month from a variety of locations within the system. Water quality monitoring ensures drinking water treatment prevents pipe corrosion, removes bacteria and other contaminants, and minimizes potentially harmful byproducts of disinfection processes. It also plays a vital role in monitoring for system leaks and backflow events.
