The NASA Wallops Flight Facility owns and operates two drinking water systems that collectively serve over 1,700 people. Both systems are fully permitted and operated in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). To ensure drinking water quality, The Medical and Environmental Management Division (MEMD) regularly tests the water for physical, biological, and chemical quality in accordance with EPA and VDH requirements. MEMD works with the Facilities Management Division in obtaining and complying with permits for the systems, tracking water usage, and implementing water conservation measures.
