ASDWA Posts Two NonCommunity Water System Webinars

The state-EPA NonCommunity Water System workgroup met throughout 2013 and 2014 to consider how best to focus on problems and solutions that pertain to this drinking water subset of systems.  The workgroup agreed that best practices across a number of topics lent themselves to a webinar format.  This would allow the greatest number of interested parties to learn what states have been doing in support of noncommunity systems.  Two webinars on this topic have now been posted on ASDWA’s web site:

May 5, 2014: “Non-Community Water System Webinar” This webinar presents the findings and recommendations of the Non-Community Water System Workgroup, and includes a presentation by the state of Maine regarding their outreach program to NCWSs, and a presentation by the state of Ohio describing their enforcement and compliance program for NCWSs.

August 19, 2014: “Getting Non-Community Water Systems Ready for the Revised Total Coliform Rule”This webinar includes presentations on a range of subjects: Wisconsin’s plan to support non-community system compliance with the RTCR; RTCR implementation in New Hampshire; Utah’s “institutional grouping” approach for outreach to NCWSs (Forest Service facilities, versus churches, versus restaurants, etc.), as well as the state’s program of providing critical information to seasonal systems to make sure they properly understand and comply with start-up and other requirements; and an introduction to outreach materials being developed by EPA to assist states in preparing small water systems for their responsibilities under the RTCR.

More webinars are planned for later in the year.  Meanwhile, you can access the recordings by clicking this link:
