  2. 1130 – Nontransient Noncommunity – Serves drinking water to at least the same 25 persons over 6 months per year, but does not meet the requirements of a community water system. (i.e., businesses, schools, etc).
  3. 1030 – Transient Noncommunity – Serves drinking water to at least 25 individuals daily (same or different people) at least 60 days out of the year, but does not meet the requirements of a community or nontransient noncommunity water system (i.e., small business with less than 25 employees, restaurants, parks, campgrounds, etc)
