Drinking Water and Lead

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management takes seriously its role in protecting Hoosiers and the environment. The agency oversees Indiana’s public water supply systems through on-site inspections, monitoring mandatory reports submitted by facilities, providing technical assistance and responding to complaints regarding water quality.

The agency partners with professional trade associations to ensure operators, local government officials and property owners have accurate and reliable information. Currently, Indiana’s public drinking water systems have a high rate of compliance. The agency requires public water systems test for lead and, when necessary, take action to educate and protect consumers.
