How do renters get water quality information about their drinking water?
A community water system must make a good faith effort to reach consumers who do not get water bills, such as renters or workers. An adequate good faith effort would include a mix of methods appropriate to the particular system, such as: posting the reports on the internet, mailing reports to postal patrons in metropolitan areas, advertising the availability of the report in the news media, publishing the report in a local newspaper, posting the report in public places such as cafeterias or lunch rooms of public buildings, delivering multiple copies of the report for distribution by single-billed customers such as apartment buildings, nursing homes, schools, or large private employers and community organizations.
