Overview of Regulatory Requirements for Small Group A Water Systems
Group A Public Water Systems are regulated by the Washington Department of Health (DOH) Office of Drinking Water (ODW). The WAC 246-290 provides the regulatory framework for Group A Public Water Systems (PWSs); rules like the “revised Total Coliform Rule”, “Lead & Copper Rule”, or the “Water Efficiency Rule” spell out what PWSs have to do to comply with those regulations.
Our “Overview of Regulatory Requirements for Small Group A Water Systems” workshop explains the requirements small Group A PWS must meet to be compliant with WA Drinking Water Regulations. We will discuss operating permits, monitoring & reporting requirements, coliform monitoring plans, emergency preparedness & contingency plans, water use efficiency programs, source water protection programs, and more.
In addition, we will explore how to prepare for sanitary surveys, respond to sanitary survey findings, report violations, and how to communicate with your regulator.
