Drinking Water Quality Topics

Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act in 1974, and made major amendments to the act in 1996. The act requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to establish and enforce national drinking water standards. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has delegated the rule-making and enforcement authority in Texas to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
