Public Water Systems

Butte County Environmental Health's (BCEH) Small Water Systems Program is designated as the Local Primacy Agency (LPA) responsible for the enforcement of State and Federal regulations. These regulations are designed to ensure that small public water systems deliver safe, adequate, and dependable (potable) drinking water. The LPA oversees all public water systems with less than 200 service connections and is involved with permitting, inspection, and water quality monitoring. BCEH has approximately 90 small public water systems serving subdivisions, mobile home parks, schools, and businesses.
