Proposed Drinking Water SUPPLY ORDINANCE UPDATE

Updated 05/18/18

Kitsap Public Health Board Ordinance 1999-6, Rules and Regulations for Private and Public Water Supplies, has become antiquated and is in need of an update. On May 1, Kitsap Public Health staff will present proposed revisions to the ordinance to the Kitsap Public Health Board during their monthly meeting. Learn more about the history of this revision process. Following the meeting, the Health District will solicit more public comment and feedback on the proposed ordinance. The Health District intends to bring a final draft proposal of the ordinance to the Health Board for formal consideration (public hearing) during the June 5, 2018, regular meeting.

Overview of proposed ordinance changes (presentation)

Please note that there is not a strike-out/underline document of Ordinance 1999-6 because it is so out of date; hence, that is why the summary and comparison document has been prepared.
