The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a wealth of important data regarding clean drinking water. These links will connect directly to specific pages that are useful for Sonoma County residents. As our water resource continues to shrink, we run ever greater risks of contamination. Below are links to lists of known contaminants, unfortunately some contaminants are regulated and some are not.



The National Primary Drinking Water Regulations

National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWRs or primary standards) are legally enforceable standards that apply to public water systems. Primary standards protect public health by limiting the levels of contaminants in drinking water. Vi st the list of regulated contaminants with links for more details.


Unregulated Drinking Water Contaminants

This list of contaminants which, at the time of publication, are not subject to any proposed or promulgated national primary drinking water regulation (NPDWR), are known or anticipated to occur in public water systems, and may require regulations under SDWA. For more information check out the list, or visit the Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate List (CCL) website.
