Groundwater Rule Placards
The Groundwater Rule (GWR) Monitoring Requirements Placards are an Adobe pdf tool to help systems understand monitoring and communication requirements under the GWR. The tool targets system types (i.e. CWS, NCWS, wholesale, consecutive systems) and the specific information on which GWR requirements must be met. Using the placards, it is the goal of EPA that operators of specific system types be able to udnerstand which GWR requirements must be met in the event that a total coliform-positive or fecal coliform-positive sample is identified.
