Water Quality

The Water Quality Control Division monitors and reports on the quality of state waters to prevent water pollution, protect, restore and enhance the quality of surface and groundwater while ensuring that all drinking water systems provide safe drinking water. We inspect water systems, issue permits, ensure compliance, and take action against entities who violate state and federal regulations. We work in partnership with utilities, counties, and other agencies to oversee, improve, and maintain quality drinking, surface, and ground water.
