Risk Management Research

State-of-the-Science Technology Assessments – Water

States, local utilities, and the water industry rely on EPA’s water researchers to provide technical assistance on effective, reliable, and cost-effective techniques that can ensure water quality and safe drinking water.

Water risk management research integrates cost analysis with the expertise of chemical and environmental engineers, environmental and physical scientists, chemists, biologists, toxicologists, geneticists, microbiologists, and ecologists. These experts conduct research on managing contaminants in water supplies. The interdisciplinary teams also develop approaches to monitor, treat, characterize, protect, and restore impaired waterways and infrastructure. Our research ensures effective EPA response to public health emergencies involving our drinking water supply, both in the United States and around the globe.
