Agency Offers Sanitary Survey Guidance Manual for Groundwater

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has developed the "Sanitary Survey Guidance Manual for Ground Water Systems" to provide states, tribes, and other primacy agencies with a brief review of the sanitary survey regulatory provisions of the Ground Water Rule (GWR).

The manual describes the details of a comprehensive sanitary survey, addressing the minimum eight sanitary survey elements required under the GWR and provides specific examples of what constitutes a significant deficiency. Sanitary surveys are a proactive public health measure that can identify deficiencies in drinking water systems before any contamination of the public water supply occurs.

The manual also helps surveyors understand how each set of Safe Drinking Water Act regulations applies to sanitary surveys. To access this guidance and other information about the rule, visit
