Last Update: January 3, 2014
- NOTE: Effective July 1, 2014, the Drinking Water Program was transferred from CDPH to State Water Resources Control Board and is now the Division of Drinking Water (DDW).

It also ― in subsection (b) ― requires public water systems with more than 10,000 service connections that detect contaminants above their public health goals (PHGs) to provide PHG exceedance reports every three years and to hold public hearings regarding their reports.
