The Blueprint for Onsite Water Systems was created to assist communities with developing a local program to manage and oversee onsite water systems that protect public health. A local program can build on existing plumbing, public health, and building standards and codes while addressing water, stormwater, and wastewater management programs in a coordinated and streamlined manner. Published by WERF, WRF, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. 20 pages. Online PDF. (2014)
