The yellow highlighting shows which water uses the operation will AUTOFAIL on the audit if NO water tests showing potability have been completed.
Both charts (one out of 10 points for L3A and the other out of 8 points for L3B) work the same way, except for the autofail as explained above. The Yes/No guidance in the charts will be used to determine the scoring.
In the chart in L3A (out of 10 points):
The operation must provide results from two tests that show potability for each water use. Each test is worth 5 points. The marks are not for how many uses/sources the operation has. Instead, overall compliance with the requirement is scored. For example if the operation has two wells which would require two tests each, the tests are NOT worth 2.5 each. Each well is considered in turn. If they have tested the first well twice at the appropriate times but they have not tested the second well at all, they will AUTOFAIL because one of their water uses is not proven potable. The operation has not met the program requirement to show potability for all water uses.
If the operation had tested the first well twice at the appropriate times and only tested the second well prior to use, they would score 5/10. They would NOT get 7.5 points. The marks are allotted based on completing testing for ALL of the water uses. The scoring is determined by the tests not completed (unless of course they have all been done appropriately).
In the chart in L3B (out of 8 points):
As in the chart in L3A, the operation must provide results from two tests that show potability for each water use. Each test is worth 4 points. If no testing at all has been done on one (or more) of the water uses, the score is 0. The Yes/No guidance in the chart will be used to determine the scoring.
