Drinking Water Surveillance
Water supplied to the NIH main campus and Washington DC metro area facilities comes from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). This is the same water supplied to the surrounding communities and no additional water treatment is provided by NIH. All public water systems are required by Federal Law through the Safe Drinking Water Act to ensure that the water supply and distribution systems under their control meet the criteria for safe drinking water.
Drinking Water Concerns
Drinking water quality concerns and water fountains that are not in a working, sanitary condition should be reported to your facility manager for follow-up. You can also place a maintenance service request online for follow-up.
