Commission Responsibilities

The purpose of the Safe Drinking Water Commission is to ensure all 2,800 public water systems in Missouri provide safe drinking water. The commission adopts rules to carry out the requirements of the Missouri Safe Drinking Water Law and Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. The commission establishes criteria and procedures for administering the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, which makes federal and state loan funds available to communities to upgrade and improve their drinking water systems.

All members of the commission represent the general interest of the public or public water systems. Learn more about our Laws, Rules and Regulations.
