Important Information for Water Utilities: Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination

Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination

To aid drinking water utilities in preparing for sampling and field testing that could occur during water contamination incidents, EPA posted, “Guidance for Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination”.  The guidance outlines basic and advanced field response activities and also provides information pertaining to staffing, quality assurance, and other procedures.  Additionally, the document contains useful resources, downloadable and customizable report forms and templates, and supplemental information on the application, and relative costs of field testing instrumentation and test kits.
