Land, Brenda . 2006. Water System Operator's Guide. 0623 1802P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 100 p.

This document provides information and checklists to help operators of small U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service drinking water systems keep their drinking water safe and wholesome. Water system operators are the first line of defense against waterborne health risks. This publication is not intended to replace operator certification training. It is a supplement that addresses some of the elements unique to small, transient, seasonal ground water systems. Surface water systems are not discussed because the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently reviewing the rules governing surface water and ground water under the direct influence of surface water systems.

Keywords: seasonal ground water systems, small drinking water systems, surface water systems, wells
