Drinking Water Field Inspection

The Inspection Section ensures that public water supplies (PWSs) are operated and maintained so that they produce safe water and meet the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The section staff perform routine inspections at all PWSs. These inspections include a review of the source, treatment, distribution system, storage, monitoring programs, operator certification, and the overall management and operation of the PWS. If deficiencies are found, corrective actions are required, and staff follow up to check compliance. If a PWS detects a contaminant in their water, IDEM staff provide technical assistance to help correct the problem. Inspectors also assist water systems comply with the location and construction of a new well.
