Public Water Supplies

 

Montana Drinking Water Watch (MT DWW) allows direct public access to a wide range of public water supply system information. This information is drawn directly from Montana's Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS/MT). It is real-time, meaning the information presented is current in the database as of the time the request is made.

Public Water Systems statutes

A public water supply system is defined by state law as a system that has at least 15 service connections or that regularly serves at least 25 persons daily for a period of at least 60 days in a calendar year. Such systems are for the provision of water for human consumption and may be sourced from community wells, water haulers for cisterns, water bottling plants, water dispensers, or other water supplies.

There are three types of public water supplies:


Community Water System

A community water system is a public water supply system which serves at least 15 service connections used by year-round residents or that regularly serves at least 25 year-round residents. Examples include towns and subdivisions.



Transient Non-Community Water System

A transient water system is a public water supply system that is not a community water system and does not regularly serve at least 25 of the same persons for at least 6 months a year. Examples include cafes, bars, campgrounds, motels, etc.


Non-Transient Non-Community Water System

A non-transient non-community water system is a public water system that is not a community water system and that regularly serves at least 25 of the same persons over six months per year. Examples include workplaces and schools.
