Parks and Recreational Areas

CHAPTER 32-7

Recreational Vehicle Parks and Campgrounds Act

SECTION 32-7-10



   § 32-7-10  Water supply standards. –

The following standards shall apply to recreational vehicle parks and

campgrounds:



   (1) Potable water supply and distribution:



   (i) The supply or supplies of potable water shall comply with

the applicable potable water standards of the authority having jurisdiction or,

in the absence thereof, shall meet the intent of the Safe Drinking Water Act of

1974 (public law 93-523 as amended (1986)) [42 U.S.C. § 300f et

seq.].



   (ii) Where the recreational vehicle park or campground has

its own water supply system, the components of the system shall be approved by

the authority having jurisdiction. Further, there shall be a source protection

buffer area of at least two hundred (200) feet surrounding each such supply.



   (iii) Potable water systems, if provided for filling

recreational vehicle potable water tanks, shall be located at least fifty (50)

feet from any waste disposal station. When such a system is provided, a sign of

durable material, not less than two (2) by two (2) feet in area, shall be

posted adjacent to the potable water outlet. Such sign shall be inscribed in

clearly legible letters with the following: "POTABLE WATER NOT TO BE USED FOR

FLUSHING WASTE TANKS," or other similar warning. For the purpose of this

subsection, a potable watering system shall mean a tap and not the source.



   (iv) The potable water system should be protected from

back-flow by means of a listed vacuum breaker located downstream from each

connection.



   (2) Water supplies for fire protection: Water supplies for

fire protection purposes shall meet the requirements of the authority having

jurisdiction.



   (3) Prohibited connections: The potable water supply shall

not be connected to any nonpotable or unapproved water supply.



   (4) Potable water connections at individual camping unit

sites: All wells, springs, and similar sources of water intended for potable

purposes shall be properly constructed, located, and protected to exclude

surface contamination and to minimize the potential of contamination from

sanitary hazards.
