Drinking Water

Ensuring that the water you drink is safe, whether it comes from a private residential well, a public water company or a bottler, is essential to good health. DEP regulates public water supplies and bottled and bulk water under the Pennsylvania Safe Drinking Water Act. While DEP does not regulate private residential wells, there are steps you can take to safeguard your system to make sure it's working properly.
