INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE
LONG TERM 1-ENHANCED SURFACE WATER TREATMENT RULE (LT1-ESWTR)
DATA RECORDING FORMS
NOTE: The BOLDED section and subsection letters and numbers correspond to the LT1-ESWTR Summary
Form. The italicized and underlined titles refer to the individual recording forms. Information recorded
daily on these forms will be calculated at the end of each month and transferred the LT1-ESWTR
Summary Form. The numbers under each form title (on this document) correspond to the numbers
within parenthesis on the respective data recording forms.
Section A Subsection 1 Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity
1. Identify the filtration technology used as follows: C (conventional = coagulation, flocculation,
sedimentation, filtration); D (direct = coagulation, filtration, no sedimentation); SS (slow sand); DE
(diatomaceous earth); or OTHER (specify).
2. For compliance purposes, systems may monitor plant reservoir effluent, clearwell effluent, or combined
filter effluent. Identify combined filter turbidity sampling location as follows:
PRE = plant reservoir effluent (all filters contribute to a common reservoir).
PRE-FILTER NOS. (specify) = plant reservoir effluent (covers only certain filters).
CE = clearwell effluent (all filters contribute to a common clearwell).
CE-FILTER NOS. (specify) = combined filter effluent (covers only certain filters).
CFE = combined filter effluent prior to clearwell entry (covers all filters)
CFE-FILTER NOS. = (specify) combined filter effluent prior to clearwell entry (covers only
certain filters).
Systems choosing to monitor PRE or CE need sample only one location if the effluent from all filters
contributes to a common plant reservoir or clearwell. Likewise, systems choosing to monitor CFE need
sample from only one location if the effluent from all filters contributes to a common line prior to
clearwell entry. Please remember that the sampling tap must be located on the common line
downstream of all individual filter effluent lines. If it is not, multiple monitoring sites will be required.
3. Systems that operate continuously may monitor filtered water turbidity by grab sample or utilize
continuous monitoring-recording equipment. Continuous recording is recommended but not required for
monitoring of PRE, CE, and CFE. Continuous operation means nonstop operation (for any number of
hours up to and including 24 hours) with no sporadic or intermittent operation during any part of the day
based strictly on demand. Systems conducting grab sample monitoring must measure the finished
water turbidity every 4 hours that the plant is in operation.
Systems utilizing continuous monitoring-recording equipment must report the actual reading (from the
continuous monitor or recorder) every 4 hours that the plant is in operation. All systems that operate
continuously, regardless of the monitoring method, must measure (or read) and report the final filtered
water turbidity just prior to plant shutdown. This final turbidity reading is not required if shutdown occurs
within 30 minutes after a 4-hour reading.
Systems that operate intermittently (i.e., sporadically during any part of the day based on demand)
must continuously monitor and record the filtered water turbidity. Remember, continuous recording is
required in this situation. Such systems must report the actual reading (from the continuous recorder)
every 4 hours that the plant is in operation. The closest reading (in time) to the required 4-hour reading
must be reported for each 4-hour interval that the plant did not run continuously.
Page 1 of 9
All systems utilizing continuous monitoring equipment must calibrate the continuous turbidity monitor(s) at least
th
once per week according to the procedures established in Method 2130 B of the 17
edition of Standard
Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. For more information, see the Department’s
general policy regarding the calibration of turbidimeters and chlorine residual monitoring equipment
for the Safe Drinking Water Act’s Surface Water Treatment Rule.
Record the time of day under the appropriate time slot that the filtered water turbidity was measured or
read from the continuous monitor or recorder. Include an “-F” after the time for final turbidity readings
just prior to plant shutdown (i.e., 5:00-F). Shutdown readings may be recorded in the next available
time slot as long as an “-F” follows the time for clarity (i.e., if 4-hour and shutdown readings are taken at
4:15 PM and 7:00 PM, respectively, record the 4-hour reading under the 4 PM to 8 PM slot and the
shutdown reading, 7:00-F, under the 8 PM to 12:00 M time slot). If a plant did not operate during the 4-
hour interval, record “NO” for no operation under the appropriate time slot. For clarity, include a zero in
front of the decimal point for all turbidity readings less than 1.0 NTU (i.e., 0.5, 0.4, etc.). Each turbidity
reading must be followed (in the space provided) by the initials of the person who performed the
measurement.
4. Record the total number of turbidity measurements required to be taken during each day of operation.
5. For each day of operation, record the total number of turbidity measurements that were less than or
equal to 0.3 NTU if conventional or direct filtration is used, or 1 NTU if slow sand, diatomaceous earth
filtration, or alternate filtration technology approved by the Department is used. At least 95% of the
measurements taken each month must be less than or equal to the applicable limit. The Department
may specify alternate turbidity limits, in which case the number of turbidity measurements meeting
these limits must be recorded.
Record the maximum allowable turbidity limit allowed for the type of filtration technology used by your
water treatment plant on the LT1-ESWTR Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter
Effluent Turbidity) line 1.
Record the number of CFE turbidity reading that were required of your system based on monthly filter
runs on the LT1-ESWTR Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity)
line 2.
The calculation at the bottom of the Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity recording form must be
performed monthly for each monitoring site. The calculation is performed as follows:
For the entire month, determine the total number of filtered water turbidity measurements that were
taken (add up column entitled No. of Daily Turbidity Measurements). This number equals A.
Transfer this number onto the LT1-ESWTR Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined
Filter Effluent Turbidity) line 3.
For the entire month, determine the total number of filtered water turbidity measurements taken that
were less than or equal to the limit specified for the filtration technology used (add up column
entitled No. of Daily Turbidity Measurements That are Less than or Equal to Specified Limits). This
number equals B.
Divide B by A and multiply the result by 100 to determine the percentage of turbidity measurements
for the month that did not exceed the specified limit. Transfer this result onto the LT1-ESWTR
Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity) line 4.
6. Based on grab sample measurements, or actual readings from the continuous monitor or recorder,
record the total number of turbidity measurements that exceed 1 NTU during each day of operation and
Page 2 of 9
their values if conventional or direct filtration is used. At the end of each month, add the numbers in this
column and transfer the sum to LT1-ESWTR Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined
Filter Effluent Turbidity) line 5.
If slow sand, diatomaceous earth, or other technology approved by the Department is used for filtration,
record the total number of turbidity measurements that exceed 5 NTU and their values. At the end of
each month, add the numbers in this column and transfer the sum to LT1-ESWTR Summary Form
Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity) line 6.
If more than one exceedance occurs on a given day, the number of exceedances and their values must
be recorded (i.e., 1=5.2, or 2=5.1, & 5.6, etc.). Enter these values onto the LT1-ESWTR Summary
Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter Effluent Turbidity) Exceedance of Maximum Turbidity
Limit box. If no exceedances occurred during the month, write NONE in the box.
Systems using conventional and direct filtration must contact the Division of Municipal Facilities as
soon as possible, but no later than the end of the next business day, whenever the turbidity of the
finished water EXCEEDS 1 NTU for systems.
Systems using slow sand, diatomaceous earth or alternative filtration technologies approved by this
Department must contact the Division of Municipal Facilities as soon as possible, but no later than
the end of the next business day, whenever the turbidity of the finished water EXCEEDS 5 NTU.
The single highest CFE turbidity reading that was recorded at your plant during the month must be
recorded on the LT1-ESWTR Summary Form Section A, subsection 1 (Combined Filter Effluent
Turbidity) line 7.
Section A Subsection 2 Individual Filter Turbidity Monitoring Data Summary Form
1. Individual filter turbidimeters that operate continuously, must be calibrated weekly in strict accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions using EPA-approved primary standards or calibration modules (see
general policy for the Calibration Requirements of Turbidimeters Under the Surface Water Treatment
Rule). Circle whether or not turbidimeters were calibrated weekly during the month.
2. The person(s) responsible for checking individual filter data during the month from strip charts or
computer readouts should be the same person who fills out the ESWTR monthly compliance forms.
3. All systems, regardless of how they operate (i.e., continuous or intermittently), must monitor individual
filtered water turbidity by utilizing continuous monitoring - recording equipment. Systems must record
the actual reading (from each individual filter’s turbidimeter) at least once every 15 minutes anytime
an individual filter is producing water to a clearwell. The measurements must be stored in such a way,
so that the data can be easily retrieved. This retrievable data can then be used to complete the
Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule reports, or for review by the Department for at least the next
3 years.
Data recording devices will have to be programed so that the monitoring system will allow individual
filter turbidity measurements to be recorded at least every 15 minutes from the time that the water from
each individual filter passes through a turbidimeter on its way to the clearwell. This point where the
water first enters a turbidimeter will be 00 on a time scale, anytime that the system is started, or a filter
is placed back on-line after it has been backwashed. The plant’s first measurement would be taken at
00 + 15 (the point where the water first enters the turbidimeter, plus 15 minutes). The second
measurement is at 00 + 30, the third 00 + 45, the fourth 00 + 60, the fifth 00 + 75, and so on. If a public
water system is monitoring turbidity more frequently then every 15 minutes, they must be sure that the
intervals set between measurements allow for a turbidity analysis at the 15-minute and 30-minute
