This program deals with Limited Use Public Water Systems (public water systems which are not covered by the Safe Drinking Water Act), multi-family water systems, and private water systems.  Definitions for these systems and statutory authorization are found in section 381.0062 of the Florida Statutes.  Chapter 64E-8 of the Florida Administrative Code establishes the rules to implement the statutes.  It includes setback standards for private water systems, construction standards for multi-family water systems, and construction and operation standards for limited use public water systems. The program is implemented at the local level by the county health departments.
