Safe, clean, affordable drinking water is a priority for SCWC and its members. SCWC monitors regional and statewide water quality issues and actively works to ensure science-based research and standards guide state and federal regulations.
Clean Water Act
Enacted by Congress in 1972, the Clean Water Act is one of the nation’s most sweeping environmental laws, and it continues to make a broad, over-arching impact on the way water quality is regulated in California, and nationwide.
Safe Drinking Water Act
The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 ensures control of substances with the greatest risk to water quality; prevents contamination of source water; and informs consumers of contaminant levels and health risks in their water supply.
