As a drinking water system operator, your most important job is protecting the health of your customers. This guide will help you do that job by providing information about: Reducing the risk of waterborne disease by providing multiple barriers of protection. The importance of monitoring drinking water to ensure its quality and protect public health. The monitoring you are required to do under the Total Coliform Rule. The steps you must take if your samples indicate the presence of coliform bacteria. A worksheet to help you keep track of the monitoring and follow-up you are required to do. Appendices contain information about developing an effective plan for where to collect samples, as well as step-by-step instructions for sample collection. This workbook describes minimum Federal requirements under the Total Coliform Rule. Some States may have specific or additional requirements and/or monitoring forms. Be sure to check with your State drinking water agency regarding their specific requirements. (Systems on Tribal lands, in Wyoming, or in the District of Columbia should check with their EPA Regional office.)
