Non-community public water systems are facilities, such as schools, factories, restaurants, resorts and churches, served by their own water supply (usually a well). These facilities are required to provide a safe and adequate supply of water under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
Non-community water systems serve either a transient or a non-transient population. A non-transient, non-community public water system serves the same individuals every day, such as a school, daycare or factory. A transient, non-community public water system serves different individuals each day, such as a restaurant, campground or highway rest area. Since they serve different types of populations, there are different requirements for transient and non-transient public water systems. Currently, there are nearly 3,800 non-community public water systems in Illinois.
