Public Notification - RTCR Treatment Technique Violation Template

When a PWS does not complete their corrective action within the required timeframe after a Level 1 or Level 2 Assessment they receive a Treatment Technique Violation. Part of returning to compliance from the violation is notifying customers and consumers that they did not complete the corrections in time by issuing this public notification. You can use this template as a guide to prepare that public notice. This template is also available in MS Word format.
