    Abstract: Last conducted in 2001, the Community Water System Survey 
is conducted about every 5 years to gather information on the operating 
and financial characteristics of a nationally representative sample of 
community water systems. The agency uses the data provided by this 
survey to meet its Regulatory Impact Analysis obligations under EO 
12866 and its obligations to assess and mitigate regulatory impacts on 
small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act and the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. Also, under Section 
1412(b)(3)(C) of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Agency must prepare a 
Health Risk Reduction and Cost Analysis for any proposed National 
Primary Drinking Water Regulation. Through this survey EPA seeks to 
gather information on community drinking water system finances, as well 
as infrastructure characteristics that bear on both present costs and 
future cost impacts, including current treatment, storage and 
distribution system configurations, to help inform the Agency's 
determination of baseline conditions for effective economic analysis. 
In addition, the survey will provide a limited amount of information to 
help the agency better conduct its outreach efforts to assist the 
regulated community and gauge the effectiveness of current program 
initiatives in the area of water security. This is a one-time
