The Small Systems Low-Cost Technology Initiative began in 1988 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that low-cost treatment technologies are available and that the technologies are acceptable to state regulators and small water systems. Nine small water systems were selected to represent a range of possible in-place treatment technologies, and a range of system sizes and ownership types. The selected nine small water systems include: Green Cove Condominiums, Oak Harbor, Ohio; Pineloch Sun Beach Club, Ronald, Washington; Lima Brighton Elementary School, Howe, Indiana; Fruitland Domestic Water Company, Crawford, Colorado; Lost Lake Camp, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon; Darboy Sanitary District, Appleton, Wisconsin; Taycheedah Correctional Facility, Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin; Readsboro Water Treatment Facility, Readsboro, Vermont; and Barrick Goldstrike Mines, Inc., Elko, Nevada. The nine systems represent different installed treatment technologies, different ownership types, several types of operation and maintenance strategies, and different approaches to improving the quality of drinking water.
