In the context of this assignment, the definition of O&M includes not only the technical tasks associated with maintaining a water supply system, but also the institutional framework necessary to support sustainable services after the construction of the system. This Guide for Small Community Water Suppliers and Local Health Officials explains why lead in drinking water may still be a threat to public health in small communities.
