Submitted acceptable certification form under the Water Quality Accountability Act (state-level)

This measure is a regulatory requirement.

At the state level, this metric shows the percentage of drinking water systems which have submitted certification forms as required by the Water Quality Accountability Act. Each system must report annually whether or not the water system complies with all federal and State drinking water regulations and the relevant sections of the WQAA. Note that the Act only applies to drinking water systems with more than 500 service connections. For a more detailed overview of the WQAA, click here.

The percentage was calculated out of the number of systems that reported either a "Yes" or "No" value, rather than out of the total number of systems in New Jersey. Percentages by system size: 98% of large systems, 96% of medium systems, and 93% of small systems submitted certification forms in 2019.

Note: Systems may have updated results from the latest data shown here. To check for updated results, you can search the system in NJDEP DataMiner. (Report Category > Water Supply and Geoscience > Safe Drinking Water > Water Quality Accountability Act Certification Forms)
