Small Public Water Systems

A small public water supply, also known as a minor water system, is defined as a system with less than fifteen service connections and serves less than 25 people each day. Examples of small public systems may include facilities like mobile home parks, recreational vehicle parks or small businesses that are not required to have a license from the Oklahoma Department of Health. In 2001, ECLS took responsibility for this program. In July 2008, DEQ began implementing OAC 252:624, a rule specifically for the permitting, construction, operation, and maintenance of minor water systems. Any variances will require the system to be designed by an engineer and approved by the Water Quality Division. An application for construction may be obtained at the local DEQ office. These systems are inspected and sampled annually by the local DEQ offices.
