Data Management enters all data received from the Monthly Operational Reports, bacteriological reports, and chemical reports into a specialized database called SDWIS (Safe Drinking Water Information System). Each public water system monitors/samples their water for various chemicals and contaminants that has the potential to be a public health risk. Some chemical/contaminants that systems test for are chlorine, e-coli, arsenic, and nitrate, just to name a few. The EPA maintains data in several databases and it uses this information to help manage environmental programs, and provide public access to the data.
