Many small and rural systems have both cost and quality problems. Their unit costs tend to be higher because of the small number of connections they service. As shown by the Community Water Supply Survey of 1969, many small systems have trouble meeting minimal drinking water standards. These problems are likely to be compounded in the future as drinking water standards are raised. The cost of building a conventional water treatment plant to provide higher quality water for a small community may be prohibitive. A possible alternative to a conventional water treatment plant is a package water treatment plant. These plants are self-contained units that can be installed for a minimum cost. Results from a study of 36 package plants in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee show that treatment plants can provide water that meets the turbidity requirement of the National Interim Drinking Water Standards.
