The intent of the regulatory action is to amend and update the Waterworks Regulations to ensure they are clear, concise, and technically correct, which will facilitate the permitting, design, construction and operation of waterworks in Virginia. The goal of the regulatory action is to establish requirements for the basic design, construction, and operation of waterworks and to set enforceable standards for water quality to ensure waterworks provide safe and reliable drinking water that protects public health.
