The MSIS consists of eight subsystems: (1) Public Water Supply Inventory; (2) Water Quality Compliance; (3) Regulations; (4) Federal Reporting; (5) Variances and Exemptions; (6) Enforcement Actions; (7) Sanitary Survey; and (8) Operator and Mailing. The first four subsystems comprise the basic package, which is required if any portion of the MSIS is to be used. States may select the base package and one or more optional sub-systems, depending on their volume of data and individual needs. Volume 3 lists the data element dictionary.
