Percent of Systems in Total Compliance with Federal Safe Drinking Water Act

Posted on 10/21/2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measure indicates the percentage of all public water supply systems that are compliant with all federal health-based regulations for drinking water.  If a public water supply system is not in compliance, it means it has had an exceedance of a Maximum Contaminant Level or Action Level in accordance to state and federal drinking water regulations.  The exceedance may warrant additional requirements including increased monitoring, providing public notice to citizens and adjusting water treatment operations.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
