A PILOT STUDY OF DRINKING WATER SYSTEMS ON AND ALONG THE NATIONAL SYSTEM OF INTERSTATE AND DEFENSE HIGHWAYS. A PILOT STUDY

The safety and adequacy of water delivered to the public in cities and towns has received an increasing level of attention in recent years, however, little attention has been given to the drinking water systems provided for the use of the traveling public along Interstate Highways. Although the attention given to these systems has been small, their significance cannot be overlooked. It is estimated that there are approximately 9100 water supply systems serving the traveling public on and along Interstate Highways and it is estimated from Federal Highway Administration sources that over one million travelers use these facilities daily. The report discusses the safety of drinking water systems for the traveling public along highways.
