The consumer notice is required for all lead results and may also be used for copper. The templates with the mandatory language, instructions, and certification page are available on the Forms website (last section). Note that there are four forms, depending on system type and whether lead data or lead and copper data will be provided. The system must also send the completed certification form to the DNR as proof that the consumer notice was conducted, along with one copy of the actual notice.
This is a reminder for all community and non-transient non-community systems that sampled for lead and copper between June 1 and Sept. 30, 2018, to submit the certification form that the consumer notices were distributed. The certification and one copy of the consumer notice are due to the DNR by Dec. 30, 2018. So far, the DNR has received about half of the certifications due from this summer’s sampling efforts. If you aren’t sure about the requirements, or have other questions, please call or email your contacts in Water Supply Operations. Your contact’s name and phone number are listed on the cover page of your current operation permit.
