Ch. NR 811 Note Note: Chapter NR 111 as it existed on April 30, 1992 was repealed and a new chapter NR 811 was created effective May 1, 1992. Chapter NR 811 as it existed on November 30, 2010, was repealed and a new chapter NR 811 was created effective December 1, 2010.
NR 811.01 NR 811.01 Applicability. This chapter governs the general operation, design and construction of community water systems and the construction of any water system serving 7 or more single family homes, 10 or more duplex living units, 10 or more mobile homes, 10 or more condominium units or 10 or more apartment units. One duplex equals 2 living units. The standards for design and construction shall be considered minimum standards for new facilities and the minimum standards to which facilities in existence on December 1, 2010, shall be upgraded when improvements are undertaken at those facilities except for systems where all of the living units are owned by a single owner and the owner provides information indicating that less than 25 year-round residents will be served. These standards may be imposed on a case-by-case basis to facilities in existence on December 1, 2010, when the department determines that a health risk exists due to the water system. The owner shall be responsible for ensuring that the requirements of this chapter are met.
NR 811.01 Note Note: The authority to promulgate and enforce these rules is contained in chs. 280 and 281, Stats.
