Safe Drinking Water Act
  Congress passed the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), P.L. 93-523, to protect public drinking water supplies from harmful contaminants. The Act, as amended, is administered through regulatory programs that establish standards and treatment requirements for drinking water, control underground injection of wastes that might contaminate water supplies, and protect groundwater.
