Water Quality

Safe Drinking Water Act

The North Kingstown Department of Water Supply is governed by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1974, it required the US Environmental Protection Agency to establish drinking water regulations designed to ensure safe drinking water. The law requires us to sample our water for over 100 regulated and unregulated contaminants. 

Additional Monitoring

We supplement the required data with voluntary monitoring of our wells, storage tanks and distribution system. We are always happy to share our water quality data with you. It is important to us that our customers feel confident that the water they use is safe.
