  Providing Timely Drinking Water and Source Water Quality Information to Your Community, Des Moines Water Works' Project (81 pp, 11 MB) (EPA/625/R-01/006) April 2002

EPA has developed a technology transfer handbook for the Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking Des Moines Water Works (DMWW) drinking water quality project. The handbook outlines the steps needed to develop, operate, and maintain the treated and source water quality monitoring system and data delivery/management systems of the DMWW project. The handbook provides the following information:

  • How the project disseminates time-relevant and real-time drinking water quality data to the public
  • How the existing urban watershed impacts the drinking water supply, including a discussion on the existing and future urban runoff studies
  • How the project establishes and maintains an education and outreach program using a Web site and various other educational materials
  • Detailed descriptions of the project's monitoring and data delivery/management systems
  • Approaches for troubleshooting monitoring and data delivery systems
  • Techniques used to develop sampling, analytical, and quality assurance and quality control plans
