Abstract
The manual is designed to assist owners and operators of small public water systems in their goal of providing safe and sustainable water to their customers. It contains appropriate information about requirements under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act and basic information about implementing water quality improvements. Like the predecessor document, 'Manual of Individual Water Supply Systems' (EPA-570/9-82-004, 1982), the manual contains practical information for building safe water systems. The manual is updated with current technology information. Coverage includes the basics of water purification by disinfection and filtration; package plants; corrosion control; desalting; household treatment units; solar-, wind-, and hand-powered pumping devices; sanitary water catchment; defluoridation; conservation; and other subjects. The manual is also outfitted with useful advice for improving the ties among the community, water system owners and operators, and external groups that offer financial, technical and other support to small systems.
