The report shall describe the operating plan for the system and shall specify how the responsible party will respond to failure of major system components.

(d) A state small water system shall provide the following notice to the consumers served by the state small water system: “The domestic water supply for this area is provided by a state small water system.

If you have questions concerning your water supply, you should contact [insert (1) name of water system, (2) name of responsible person, and (3) telephone number] or your local health department.” This notice shall be by direct delivery on an annual basis or by continuous posting at a central location within the area served by the state small water system.
