Bulk Water for Public Water Systems
In the event of equipment failure, water quality or quantity problems, or other unexpected circumstances, a Public Water Supply (PWS) may need to purchase bulk water from an approved source to maintain an adequate water supply during an emergency. Although NHDES does not encourage this method of supplying water, trucked water may be the only viable alternative in some situations. Env-Dw 304 Emergency Bulk Water Supply for Public Water Systems, defines state requirements to ensure that water obtained from bulk water deliveries meets the same water quality standards that are required of public water suppliers.
