The purpose of this handbook is to explain EPAs Public Notification Rule and provide examples of effective public notices. This handbook is designed to meet the needs of public water systems of all sizes. Throughout the handbook there are suggestions and instructions targeted to very small community systems (systems that serve 500 people or less). These suggestions, along with other useful hints for creating effective notices, are set aside in shaded boxes. This version of the handbook updates the June 2000 version. It reflects some recent EPA regulations, including the Filter Backwash Recycling Rule, Long Term 1 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, and Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule. New templates for some violations under these rules are included. Also, Chapter 4 includes new information on effective risk communication. This version of the handbook does not include public notification requirements and information for the Ground Water Rule (GWR) published November 8, 2006.
