Remember to Use Helpful EPA Tools

As you work with your water systems and the communities they serve, don’t forget that EPA has created a vast array to helpful tools, brochures, reports, and other resources that answer those “frequently asked questions” from the public such as:

  • Where does your drinking water come from?
  • How do you know if your drinking water is safe?
  • How can you protect it?
  • What can you do if there’s a problem with your drinking water?

First printed in 2009, EPA’s “Water on Tap: What You Need to Know” is still a useful resource in helping the public understand the value of the water they drink.  The brochure is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.  Click Water On Tap: What You Need To Know (PDF) or order by phone from the National Service Center for Environmental Publications (1-800-490-9198) using the document reference number EPA 816-K-09-002.
