There are over 4,000 water systems in Indiana. These systems range from schools and utilities to rural restaurants and churches. Water systems must check their water often for bacteria and unsafe chemicals and send the test results to IDEM. The water can become unsafe when pipes crack, water softeners are not cleaned, chemicals are spilled near the well, or contaminants backflow into the water systems.
Utilities provide annual reports about their water to their customers. Please contact your water utility for a copy of this report.
