In this action, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing minor corrections to the final Revisions to the Total Coliform Rule (RTCR), as authorized under the Safe Drinking Water Act, to correct typographical errors in sections relating to recordkeeping and State primacy requirements, which could affect implementation and enforcement of the RTCR if they were left uncorrected. This proposed action also includes other edits to the final rule language that are intended to improve the understanding of the rule and avoid confusion. This proposed action does not impose new requirements; rather it clarifies what must be included in States' primacy applications related to this rule and the specific records water systems must keep. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is making these minor corrections and edits to the final RTCR as a direct final rule without a prior proposed rule. If we receive no adverse comment, we will not take further action on this proposed rule.
