"Everyone in South Dakota who uses water from public drinking water systems expects that water to be safe and to meet all standards," said DENR Secretary Steve Pimer. "DENR is proud to recognize those systems and operators who have achieved 100 percent compliance during the past year."

- Compliance monitoring,
- Drinking water standards,
- Annual Drinking Water Report distribution,
- Lead/copper action levels, and
- Operator certification requirements.
