Public Drinking Water

The primary purpose of the Water Supply Program is to ensure the safety of county public water supplies. There are three general types of public water supplies: community, transient non-community, and non-transient non-community. Each water supply has its own individual source of water, whether it's a well, spring, lake, or surface water.

Community Water Systems

Community water systems serve year-round residential populations such as cities, villages, mobile home parks, and subdivisions.

Transient Non-Community Water Systems

Transient non-community water systems serve different people every day such as restaurants, campgrounds, and hotels.

Non-Transient, Non-Community Water Systems

Non-transient, non-community water systems serve the same group of people every day, but are not residential. Examples are schools and large factories.
