The Water Quality Association's statement in response to the National Resource Defense Council report on public water system lead violations.
Homeowners concerned about the quality of water being supplied by their local public water system can ask for a copy of their municipality’s Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) requires community water systems (those serving more than 25 people or 15 households) to issue a CCR every year by July 1st.
The Water Quality Association's (WQA's) Gold Seal Certification Program has certified water treatment point-of-entry and point-of-use since 1959. The program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
