Campgrounds, Resorts, and Eateries
Some campgrounds, resorts, and restaurants as well as rest stops, hotels and tourist attractions can be considered as public water systems if they serve over 25 persons for 60 days of the year and maintain their own water system. The water served by these systems must meet state and federal drinking water standards.
These water systems are required to test for bacteria, nitrates, and nitrites on a regular basis. The South Dakota Drinking Water Program regulates these systems and performs an on-site inspection every five years. More information about these systems and their drinking water can be found on Your Water System Information by clicking here or on the sidebar.
