Water (Transient Non-Community Water Supplies)

The department contracts with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to conduct transient non-community water inspections for 17 counties in North Iowa. The inspections are conducted to ensure the drinking water is safe at facilities where the public may have exposure to the water. The facilities that may be inspected include restaurants, parks, churches and other public use establishments that are not connected to a community water supply.

During each inspection, inspectors check facility records, well equipment, distribution systems, maintenance and possible contamination sources that may affect the safety of the water supply.
