Group A Water System

Regional Engineers with the State DOH are responsible for the implementation of the state’s drinking water program in assigned counties. They conduct sanitary surveys and special purpose investigations of public water systems and promote needed water facility improvements. They also review and approve water system plans and specifications for system improvements and provide technical assistance to purveyors and local health departments upon request. The DOH Regional Engineer for Island County works out of the Northwest Regional Office in Kent.

For Group A water systems (15 or more connections), Island County Public Health staff issues water availability verification for building and sewage permits.  All other Group A water system requirements are in the jurisdiction with the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and not with Island County Public Health.
