All drinking water begins in a watershed. The source of your local drinking water system can be a river, lake, stream, or ground water well within that watershed. Community Water Systems (CWS) treat and distribute water from these sources and deliver it to consumer's taps.
Use the table below to locate your CWS (from the list of water systems which serve your county) in the watershed which provides the primary source of raw water for your water system.
Each CWS in the current inventory was assigned to a single watershed, based on data in the SDWIS that indicated the geographic location of the water intakes or ground water wellheads. Latitude/longitude data was used where it was available. Where lat/long data was not available, the CWS assignment to a specific watershed was based on surrogate data residing in SDWIS, the zip code associated with the CWS address or the principal county served by the water system. Using the Zip Code or the county does not guarantee that the CWS will be assigned to the correct watershed. Click here for more a more detailed discussion.

If you cannot find your CWS from the above table, or the above table does not exist, it may be because your CWS does not specify the principal county served information in the Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS).
