Drinking Water and Lead

IDEM takes its role in protecting Hoosiers and the environment seriously. The agency oversees Indiana’s public water supply systems through inspections, reviewing reports submitted by water systems, providing technical assistance, and responding to complaints about water quality.

The agency works with professional trade associations to make sure operators, local government officials, and property owners have reliable information. IDEM requires public water systems test for lead and, when necessary, take action to educate and protect consumers.
