Small water systems are plagued by financial, technical and managerial difficulties that severely impact their ability to meet the challenges of aging equipment, unexpected sources of contamination and more stringent drinking water regulations mandated by the 1986 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments. In the past several years, state drinking water programs have shown a heightened interest in information about programs to control the creation of new potentially non-viable systems. The study reports findings on four states' efforts to control small systems growth: Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland and Washington. Six methods are identified including permitting process reviewing minimum design, operating and construction; encouraging interconnections with existing systems; satellite management or ownership; financial and operational requirements; financial assistance and incentives; and water supply planning. Each state interviewed utilizes some combination of the methods listed, creating programs specific to that state's needs.
