The NonCom Scoop Newsletter

The NonCom Scoop newsletter is targeted to assist the owners and operators of Minnesota’s “noncommunity public water systems” – such as schools, churches, resorts, restaurants and other businesses that have their own water supply – in providing safe drinking water. It includes tips for water system operation, regulatory updates, operator training schedules, and feature stories on noncommunity public water systems.
