American Samoa EPA Completes the 2022 Sanitary Survey of the Central Water System Press Release: October 27, 2022 The American Samoa Environmental Protection Agency (AS-EPA) recently completed a sanitary survey of the Central Water System, a public water system on Tutuila that is owned and operated by the American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA). The sanitary survey is an assessment required by AS-EPA and federal drinking water regulations under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The survey was conducted in collaboration with ASPA and the Hawai`i Rural Water Association. A sanitary survey is required by the Ground Water Rule, a regulation under the SDWA. In a survey, a public water system undergoes a physical review of the system’s water source, facilities (e.g., storage tanks, pumps, and wells), operations and maintenance processes of the water system. The survey collects information on water systems and helps AS-EPA determine ASPA’s capacity to deliver potable drinking water to the general public. To read the full Press Release, click here
