The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns and operates over 200 Public Water Supply systems in Utah and Idaho and a total of 648 in the United States. The Church is dedicated to providing safe, approved, and permitted water systems for hundreds of thousands of users annually. The church appreciates its partnership, participation, and cooperation with AWWA, State and Federal regulators, water boards, and consulting engineers. However, continuously providing safe water for this many systems at once takes a massive amount of resources and presents many challenges, especially since being a public water supply is not the main purpose of the Church. This paper presents some challenges, successes, construction projects, current status, management issues, and future opportunities for improving public drinking water supply systems. The effort of the Church and the needs of these systems constitute a large financial commitment, need for technical competence, innovative treatment methods, and operation documentation to move forward together. These systems involve hundreds of wells and springs, water treatment systems, continued operation and maintenance, never-ending monitoring, and millions of dollars of resources. Come and learn how this affects all of us as progress of the Church in the public water supply industry is highlighted.
