What is a Public Water System?

A "public water system" has 15 or more service connections or regularly serves at least 25 people 60 or more days a year. A system that serves water 60 or more days a year is considered to "regularly serve" water. Public water systems can be publicly or privately owned. Public water systems are subdivided by regulation into two major categories: community and non-community water systems. This division is based on the type of consumer served and the frequency the consumer uses the water. Basically, a community system serves water to a residential population, whereas a non-community system serves water to a non-residential population. The non-community category is further broken down into two categories: non-transient non-community water system and transient non-community water systems.
