Contaminants in Drinking Water
The Division of Science, Research and Technology has conducted research studies on contaminants in drinking water since its formation in the the 1980s. It was the pioneering work of DSRT on the occurrence of volatile contaminants in ground waters that led to the development of the A280 Safe Drinking Water amendments.

How contaminants reach ground and surface waters and potentially get into drinking water intakes is vitally important in how the Department develops strategies for protecting the health of the public. Knowledge is the first piece of the puzzle in protecting public health.
