The objective of this guidance manual is to help Public Water Systems (PWSs) in implementing the practice of disinfection profiling and benchmarking as required under the interim Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (IESWTR) promulgated December 16, 1998. The IESWTR applies to surface water or Ground Water Under Direct influence (GWUDI) of surface water systems serving 10,000 people or more. This guidance manual describes the applicability of the profiling and benchmarking provision to PWSs and details the procedures for generating a disinfection profile and calculating the disinfection benchmark. Finally, this guidance manual provides guidance to PWSs on determining 'significant changes' to disinfection practices, communicating with the State, and the use of the disinfection benchmark in modifying disinfection practices.
