This operational guide provides practical, “how-to” instruction for users of AWWA Standard G200 Distribution Systems Operation and Management. The guide is intended to help distribution system operators and managers understand the purpose and function of G200 and provide guidance in implementing and incorporating the standard into everyday operations.
The book breaks down G200’s components and provides additional standard operating procedures, best practices, and examples. It explains each section of G200 in detail, including water quality control and compliance, distribution management programs, facility operations and maintenance, documentation, and human resources.
Checklists and questions are provided to help you make sure your system meets each aspect of the standard. When used in conjunction with AWWA Standard G200, this guide provides a complete program for the management, operation, and maintenance of a small, medium-sized, or large water distribution system.
