Frequent Questions

Where can I find information related to drinking water quality on airplanes?

The primary purpose of the Aircraft Drinking Water Rule (ADWR) is to ensure that a safe and reliable supply of drinking water is provided to aircraft passengers and crew.

Using the ADWR Compliance Reports, the public can access aircraft inventory information, drinking water sample results, drinking water system disinfecting operations, as well as public notification and violation information. The data reflects compliance year 2012 through the last currently available reporting period.

For more information on the regulation, please visit EPA’s ADWR page.

If you have additional questions, you may contact the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at the following number: 1 (800) 426-4791
