3701-25-07 Water supply.

(A) The operator shall make water for human consumption available at all times from an approved source. The water must be of adequate quantity and shall either be from:

(1) A public water system or a system that meets the standards of the Ohio environmental protection agency specified in Chapter 3745-81 of the Administrative Code if the camp serves more than twenty-five people, or

(2) A private water system which meets the requirements of Chapter 3701-28 of the Administrative Code if the camp has less than fifteen or fewer service connections and serves twenty-five or fewer people.

The water supply system and equipment shall be maintained in a safe and sanitary manner so as not to create a health hazard to the occupants of the camp. Unless otherwise specified, water need not be provided for primitive camp areas.

(B) Water to be used exclusively for flushing toilets may be from a supply that does not meet the requirements of paragraph (A) of this rule only if all outlets from the supply are clearly and indelibly labeled to the effect that the water is "unsafe for human consumption".

(C) As of the effective date of this rule, when water is supplied for human consumption, the primary water source in any new or substantially altered camp shall be protected at the point of connection by an "American Society of Sanitary Engineering" (ASSE) 1013 reduced pressure principle backflow prevention assembly. All ASSE 1013 assemblies shall be annually inspected and tested by a person certified by the Ohio department of commerce to make such inspections. The devices shall be labeled to show compliance with this requirement.

(D) When the services of a water hauler are utilized to provide water for human consumption in camps, the operator of the camp shall be responsible to ensure that the water hauler has been approved by board of health having jurisdiction. Storage tanks shall be installed and maintained in accordance with rule 3701-28-13 of the Administrative Code.
