Safe drinking water in sufficient quantities is essential for protection of public health and safety. Clean drinking water protects us from waterborne diseases and exposure to possibly harmful contaminants. We also need to make sure that we have sufficient water for drinking and other public health uses, such as flushing toilets, and for responding to fires and other emergencies.
The drinking water section of the Environmental Progress Report addresses both the public health and the public safety goals of our drinking water program.
