EPA Releases Drinking Water Action Plan
EPA's Drinking Water Action Plan serves as a national call to action, urging all levels of government, utilities, community organizations, and other stakeholders to work together to increase the safety and reliability of drinking water. The Plan is organized around six Priority Areas in which there is significant opportunity for leadership from states and other partners. The Priority Areas include: 1) Building capacity for water infrastructure financing and management in disadvantaged, small, and environmental justice communities; 2) Advancing oversight of the Safe Drinking Water Act; 3) Strengthening source water protection and resilience of drinking water supplies; 4) Addressing unregulated contaminants; 5) Improving transparency, public education, and risk communication on drinking water safety; and 6) Reducing lead risks.
