Is your water source a public water supply? Do you want to know what’s in your water?
One of the key functions of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Drinking Water and Groundwater Bureau is to administer the federal Safe Water Drinking Act and state statutes to ensure that safe drinking water is reliably being provided at approximately 2,400 public water systems throughout the state.
People that are on public water supplies may want to know what’s in their water. Public Water System data is public information and NH DES provides a way to get that information through the OneStop database. By accessing this database, you can learn about the sampling schedule for your system, see permits to operate, the contacts, violations and other test results.
How to retrieve your water system information:
In your browser, type in the NHDES webpage address: http://des.nh.gov/
1. Click on the green OneStop icon on the left
2. Click on OneStop Data.
