The Safe Drinking Water Act enacted in 1974, has affected every public water system. The EPA promulgated Nation Drinking Water Standards which have been modified to address the ever expanding knowledge scientist have gained about our drinking water. Subsequent amendments to the act have lead to an increase in the cost to operate and maintain public water systems and ultimately, and increase in the rates customers pay to meet the expenses.
