Public Water Supply Assistance Program
The Commission recognizes the challenges facing smaller municipal water supply systems to keep abreast of current regulatory requirements, and therefore initiated the Public Water Supply Assistance Program in 2012 to assist small municipal systems in meeting the Commission’s regulatory requirements.
In addition to providing system-specific assistance, the Commission is also offering general outreach and education on regulatory requirements, training on the preparation and implementation of aquifer testing plans, groundwater withdrawal application preparation, and other educational programs specifically for public water supply systems.

Upcoming Groundwater Project Renewal Process Webinar Series
The Commission is offering a Webinar Series for operators, managers, board members and trustees of public water systems, consultants, project sponsors, and partner state governmental agency staff to provide guidance on the Commission’s groundwater project renewal process. This series of three webinars, in combination, is designed to provide a greater understanding of the Commission’s renewal process to all project sponsors and their consultants with targeted information in compact presentations. Each webinar is a separate topic that builds off the previous webinar, but can be attended on its own. Webinar attendees will learn from and interact with Commission staff members that review and recommend approval of aquifer testing plans (ATP), ATP waivers, and groundwater withdrawal applications. More information is available.
