This training is being held in Pacific Time.


Small public water systems that face challenges associated with removing naturally
occurring contaminants from potable water supplies often find the path to compliance
challenging. Prior to 1996, all water systems were required to use centralized
treatment systems for the removal of naturally occurring contaminants. The1996
Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) removed the prohibition on
using point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) treatment devices for small public
water systems in order to achieve compliance with some of the maximum contaminant
levels (MCLs) established under the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations.
These amendments have expanded the options small water systems may use to
meet treated water standards for naturally occurring contaminants.


POU and POE treatment devices rely on many of the same treatment technologies
used in centralized treatment plants. However, while centralized plants treat all water
distributed to consumers to the same level, POU and POE treatment devices treat
only a portion of the total flow. A POU device treats only the water intended for direct
consumption (drinking and cooking), typically at a single tap or a limited number of
taps, while a POE device treats all the water entering a single home, business, school,
or facility. Ultimately, POU or POE treatment devices may be an option for public
water systems where central treatment is not affordable.


Participants will learn:
• Types of POE/POU treatment technologies
• POE/POU regulatory requirements and restrictions
• How to plan for a POE/POU system
• The installation, maintenance, and management of POE/POU systems
• Compliance and performance monitoring of POE/POU systems
Operator Basics Series: The recommended audience includes operators, managers and
board members of very small water systems.
