Data Management

Data Management enters all data received from the Monthly Operational Reports, bacteriological reports, and chemical reports into a specialized database called SDWIS (Safe Drinking Water Information System).  Each public water system monitors/samples their water for various chemicals and contaminants that has the potential to be a public health risk.  Some chemical/contaminants that systems test for are chlorine, turbidity, total coliform, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, just to name a few.

EPA maintains drinking water data in several databases.  It uses this information to help manage environmental programs, and provides public access to the data through the Internet.  Other water-related databases are maintained in other parts of EPA.

Safe Drinking Water Information System - Federal version (SDWIS/FED): SDWIS/FED is EPA's national regulatory compliance database for the drinking water program.  It includes information on the nation's 170,000 public water systems and violations of drinking water regulations. 

Safe Drinking Water Information System - State Version (SDWIS/State):
SDWIS/State is a data system developed by the EPA for states that aids in maintaining the quality of drinking water information.
