Security Over Community Water Supply Systems (Follow-Up Report)

Most community water supply systems in New York State are required to develop plans for responding to threats to local water supplies. The plans are to be submitted to the Department of Health for review and approval. In audit 2006-S-31, we examined the Departmentís oversight of this planning process and found that certain improvements were needed. When we followed up on these matters with Department officials, we found that they had made considerable progress in implementing our audit recommendations. Due to the sensitivity of the information, our detailed audit findings and recommendations were not included in either our original audit report or our follow-up report.
