Drinking water advisory reporting system (DWARS)

DWARS is a web-based data management system for local boards of health (BOH) to report information pertaining to the issuance of drinking water advisory notices or orders and details about corrective actions (and rescinded advisory notices). Under the Drinking Water Protocol (OPHS, 2008), a local BOH is required to report any incident where an advisory notice has been issued to reduce the risk of adverse health outcomes to users of that drinking water system.
