Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

The EPA regulates drinking water through the Safe Drinking Water Act, and works to protect surface water and watersheds through enforcement of the Clean Water Act. The EPA provides funding for infrastructure, water research, data, and tools.

The mission of Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and the environment.  The Office of Water (OW) ensures drinking water is safe, and restores and maintains oceans, watersheds, and their aquatic ecosystems to protect human health, support economic and recreational activities, and provide healthy habitat for fish, plants and wildlife.
