Short-term: Water systems listed as short-term are taking immediate steps to address the advisory. The majority of advisories in this category are issued due to minor operational problems that can be easily and timely addressed. Also under this category are water systems that have been under advisory for a longer period of time and are in the process of upgrading their water supply to address the advisory.

Medium-term: Water systems listed as medium-term are taking steps to address the advisory within a two to three year period. The majority of advisories in this category are issued due to minor treatment problems that require the installation of basic treatment equipment.

Long-term: Water systems listed as long-term require significant financial capital funding to address major operational and treatment problems. The majority of the advisories in this category were issued due to a lack of critical treatment processes.
