Translated Tier 1 Notices – “Do Not Drink,” “Do Not Use” and “Boil Water”
Under AB 938 of 2011, public water systems are required to translate Tier 1 notices into multiple languages based on the population of their service areas.
To help ACWA members comply with this requirement, the association has developed Tier 1 notice templates in a variety of languages through translation service provider Avantpage.
The first set of translated Tier 1 notices are available at the link below to member agencies that contributed funds to the project with Avantpage. Translations are available in Spanish, German, French, French Creole, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Arabic, Eastern Armenian, Western Armenian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Farsi, Japanese, Thai, Hindi, Khmer, Korean, Greek, Gujarti, Hebrew, Hmong, Hungarian, Laotian, Norwegian, Serbo-Croation, Urdu, Punjabi, Ukranian and Romanian.
In addition to providing the documents below, staff with Avantpage Translation Services is available around the clock to answer any last-minute questions.
If your water agency requires assistance outside normal business hours, please contact Luis Miguel at 530-750-2040, x1 (office), 530-867-1148 (cell).
