The Clean Water Act (CWA)

The USEPA established the
Clean Water Act (CWA) with the primary objective of restoring and maintaining the
chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation’s waters.


The amount of pollutants discharged into the nations waterways by municipalities and industry are
regulated under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program. Countries throughout the world have similar programs to protect water resources and many programs are modeled after the USEPA and CWA.

Why is this Important?

Large amounts of nutrients can have
adverse effects on water by causing excessive growth of aquatic plants and
microorganisms resulting in oxygen depletion, fish kills, unpleasant odors and tastes of drinking water, as well as, other unintended consequences. Therefore, high
quality analytical instrumentation for compliance monitoring, and water nutrient research is vital.
