EPA ECHO Now Available

Friday, April 10, 2015 - by Water2Drink

You may have read previous blog posts by Water2Drink about the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the importance of water quality education, and reading your local water report. We like to bring our customers the latest in water news and provide resources for you to monitor and advocate for locally provided clean water.

The Environmental Protection Agency has a new user friendly website that presents enforcement data about SDWA drinking water violations. This service, called ECHO (Enforcement and Compliance History Online) “contains interactive charts and graphs that provide information regarding the compliance of public water systems with federal drinking water regulations, as well as enforcement actions,” according to the EPA press release dated 4/7/2015.

While the information provided by EPA’s ECHO drinking water dashboard is an overview of the regulatory activities of #EPA by states, tribes, and territories, it does provide the opportunity to “View More” additional charts and data by using the menus at the top of each section. Users can also access and download detailed data from each chart. Additionally, the dashboard provides information not only on public drinking water systems, but also provides data on “Air,” Hazardous Waste,” and “Water” as well.

Water2Drink believes knowledge is power, and becoming an educated consumer allows you to make the best choices about water filtration. Not all #waterfiltration systems are created equal, and we recommend our customers use an NSF-tested and certified Multipure Drinking Water System in their homes to ensure your family’s protection. Visit the “Resource Center” on our website,, to learn more about evaluating drinking water filter solutions and to identify the best products for your needs.
