The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation is encouraging all Tennesseans to observe National Drinking Water Week, May 5-10. Tennesseans can do their part in promoting good stewardship of the state's water supply by helping protect our source waters from pollution, practicing water conservation, actively supporting the upkeep of drinking water infrastructure and becoming involved in local water issues. In addition to celebrating National Drinking Water Week, this year marks the 39th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Coupled with the requirements of the Clean Water Act and state regulations, the Safe Drinking Water Act helps form the core of our national and state efforts to provide quality drinking water and protect the health of our citizens.
