Public Notification Requirements
What is Public Notification?
- Public notification is a federal rule that requires drinking water providers, such as the city of Glendale, to make customers aware of instances where the water provider violates the drinking water standards.
- The type, distribution, and timing of the public notices depend largely upon the nature of the violation. Under the new rule, serious violations need to be communicated within 24 hours of discovery.
- The Public Notification Rule establishes three tiers of events for which public notice must be provided.
