NOTICE:  Available for distribution – Two New Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) documents: (1) Placards and (2) Sampling Siting Plan Manual for small systems serving <1,000


These documents are designed for direct use with small PWSs.

  1. Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) Placards: collection of six (6) e-fillable placards on the RTCR requirements.
    • Designed for primacy agencies to give to small PWSs that serve 1,000 or fewer persons.
    • For non-seasonal PWSs, there are three (3) placards for collecting routine samples per Month, Quarter, or One-time a Year.
    • For seasonal PWSs, there are two (2) placards for collecting routine samples per Month or Quarter.
    • For all PWS, there is one (1) placard on Level 1 or Level 2 Assessment requirements.

Note: The placards are e-fillable in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader*. Each form is designed with a different publication number to allow for unbundling the collection while maintaining the metadata.

As the default, these placards are set to font size 13 for printing to 11X17 paper size so they can hang on the wall and remain readable. If they are printed on smaller paper (e.g., 8½X11, 8½X14) the format dimensions will shift (i.e., more white space on the top and bottom), but the information will remain readable.

 Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) Sample Siting Plan with Template Manual

    • Designed for primacy agencies to give to small PWSs that serve 1,000 or fewer persons, including direct implementation program and tribal water systems.
    • Ten page manual for selecting representative sample locations (i.e., routine & repeat samples). Includes protocols, recommended instructions, and an e-fillable sample siting plan template.  

NOTE: RTCR documents are posted to the following EPA website: https://www.epa.gov/dwreginfo/total-coliform-rule-compliance-help-public-water-systems
