December 11 8:30AM-12:30PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.


The primary mission of every public water system is to provide water that is safe to drink. There are upwards of 100 chemicals and microbials regulated under the California and federal versions of the Safe Drinking Water Act. In addition, the regulations mandate operational activities and infrastructure standards that help ensure the delivery of safe drinking water. These regulations have changed and evolved over the last 45 years.

The California drinking water regulations define “safe drinking water” and mandate operations that maintain water quality. Every operator, manager and board member are required to have a reconnaissance-level knowledge of California’s drinking water regulations and an understanding of how these regulations apply to the day-to-day operation of a public water system.
