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 pdf (opens in new window, pdf <1mb) 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.
