PWS Technical Assistance & Enforcement
Technical assistance requests are handled by the Public Water Supply Engineering & Enforcement Section (PWSES). PWSES staff provide technical assistance to all regulated Public Water Supply (PWS) systems in the State of Oklahoma. To request technical assistance, see the contact information provided below in the PWSES District Map tab, or click here.
In addition to providing technical assistance, the PWSES works with the Environmental Complaints & Local Services Division (ECLS) of DEQ to respond to PWS emergencies, citizen complaints, and in completing Sanitary Surveys. The PWSES also conducts Comprehensive Performance Evaluations, enforces all primary drinking water standards, and participates in the Area-Wide Optimization Program.
The PWSES consists of eleven District Engineers and District Representatives who are dedicated to completing these tasks in order to protect the public health and environment of the State of Oklahoma. A current PWSES District Map has been provided below which shows the responsible staff member for each of Oklahoma’s seventy-seven counties, along with their contact information.
The information provided below is intended to assist PWS systems and the public in understanding the purpose and process of the different areas that the PWSES oversees.
