Outreach Meetings Planned for Water System Oversight Change

Feb 28, 2014 No Comments by
TULARE – California will assume oversight of several small Tulare County public water systems effective July 1, 2014.
The Tulare County Health & Human Services Agency’s Environmental Health Division and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) are offering a series of outreach meetings for community residents who will be impacted by the change in oversight.
Residents can expect to learn how the change will take place, what the change means for residents, and the types of water systems affected. Meetings in Three Rivers, Sultana, Porterville, Goshen, and Teviston will be conducted in English with Spanish interpretation services.  Meetings in Woodville, Linnell, and Richgrove will be conducted in Spanish.
Under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), small public water systems with 14 to 199 service connections were previously under the Tulare County’s jurisdiction. However, CDPH recently recommended the County return regulatory jurisdiction.
 “The CDPH will become responsible for administering and enforcing the SDWA, which includes permits, inspections, and compliance,” says Jason T. Britt, Director of Public Health.
