How to Submit Data

Primacy agencies, EPA Regions and EPA headquarters personnel routinely enter and transmit water system inventory and compliance data to SDWIS/FED. Many of the websites require prior authorization and a user identification and password in order to access them. We are building this page and will be adding more detailed information.

Software and Documentation

SDWIS/FedRep is available for use by all drinking water primacy agencies, whether or not they use SDWIS/STATE, to maintain their federally reportable data.
