Senate Bill 552 Requirements for Small Water Suppliers and Rural Communities
In September 2021,
Senate Bill (SB) 552 was signed by Governor Newsom and enacted into law. SB 552 includes new responsibilities and requirements at both the state and local levels to help small water suppliers and rural communities reduce their risk of inadequate water supply during a water shortage event. Under the directive of the Board of Supervisors, the County of El Dorado requested the assistance of El Dorado Water Agency to meet SB 552 requirements in coordination with the County’s Environmental Management Department—which oversees the small water systems as the Local Primacy Agency—and the County Public Health Officer—which oversees state small water systems with 5 to 14 service connections.
