The Water Quality Protection Center operated in cooperation with NSF International. Exit EPA Disclaimer This center verified the performance of commercial-ready technologies that protect groundwater and surface waters from contamination. Technologies in this center fell under two main areas:

  • source water protection—technologies that prevent the contamination and maintain the quality of drinking water supplies from both groundwater and surface water sources
  • wet weather flow—technologies that control and treat the increased volumes of water as runoff, in sewers and wastewater treatment plants during period of wet weather events.

The center concluded operations at the end of 2013.
