Connecticut Public Water Systems

Public Water Systems, otherwise known as PWS, are divided by “classifications” or “type of system." There are three types of public drinking water systems:

  1. Community Water System, which serves at least 25 residents throughout the year.
  2. Non-Transient, Non-Community System (NTNC) is not a community system and regularly serves at least 25 of the same people over six months of the year (i.e., schools and office buildings).
  3. Transient Non-Community Systems (TNC) Do not meet the definition of a NTNC system (i.e. restaurants, parks, etc.) They do not need a certified operator but still need to do quarterly water testing.

Clean Commercial Drinking Water The State Department of Public Health (DPH) regulates these systems to assure a safe and adequate supply of drinking water. Water sources can be from groundwater (well) or surface water (reservoir).

Water Systems Specialties currently has about 53 contracted PWS.
