The public water systems (PWSs) across the US utilize either groundwater, surface water, or groundwater under the direct influence of surface water (GWUDI) resource, treat the water to applicable federal primary and secondary drinking water standards, and thus, supply to residential, institutional, commercial, and industrial users. The PWSs in the US are required by federal requirements to provide the annual water quality reports, Consumer Confidence Reports (CCRs), to their customers. The water quality effects on people at the City of Flint MI alerted significant number of PWSs in the US on the quality of water supplied or distributed. Also, in a significant number of water resources, the harmful algae bodies or toxins have been creating water treatment issues during the summer time, i.e., July through September.

The source water quality, selected treatment train, and the product drinking or potable water quality are critical elements of water supply at all times. In addition, the per-capita water demand, current municipal and industrial usage trends, and the energy and chemical consumption for water processing have also been critical in the annual capital and operational budgets, in that, the poor economies of the cities and towns toward undertaking the good care of water infrastructure assets. This presentation will include: a review of drinking water production in the capital cities of the fifty (50) US states and discuss the applicable stats of the water treatment infrastructure, including the critical water quality parameters.
