Public Health Data Inventory

Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS)


The Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS) is a user interface/database created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help primacy states collect, organize and manage drinking water data gathered from all of Nebraska's public water systems (PWS). Every three months Nebraska submits a subset of this data to a federal version of SDWIS maintained by the EPA.

Type of Data

This data includes, but is not limited to, PWS inventory information, drinking water sample and analytical result information, PWS monitoring and compliance information, contact information for individuals, businesses, and government agencies that are affiliated with PWSs, tracking information on Field Service Site Visits, and information on laboratories and methods used in drinking water testing.

Data Collection Method and Availability

Data on PWS, inventory information, contact information, and monitoring and compliance is collected and maintained by Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services' staff. Drinking water sample data are collected and generated by water operators who work throughout the state and by contract labs and the Nebraska State Laboratory which conducts water sample testing.
