The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) was signed into law on December 16,1974, tasking the EPA with a new mission to set drinking water quality standards. That means 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of this important milestone in protection of public health.
The Minnesota Department of Health is getting a head start on the celebration with this new video. It includes an interview with former Vice President (and Minnesota native) Walter Mondale, who was part of the Senate that passed the SDWA bill, and others about this landmark law.
SmallWaterSupply.org will be covering other SDWA 40th anniversary celebrations throughout the year!
