After review of the submitted documentation, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Ground Water Rule, Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, and Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve Massachusetts’ PWSS program revision for these rules.

Program Requirement Revisions Related to the Public Water System 
Supervision Programs for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the State 
of Rhode Island and the State of Vermont

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 
the State of Rhode Island and the State of Vermont are in the process 
of revising their respective approved Public Water System Supervision 
(PWSS) programs to meet the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act 
(SDWA).
    The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has adopted drinking water 
regulations for the Ground Water Rule (71 FR 65574) promulgated on 
November 8, 2006, the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule 
(71 FR 654) promulgated on January 5, 2006, and the Stage 2 
Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (71 FR 388) promulgated 
on January 4, 2006. After review of the submitted documentation, the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Ground Water Rule, Long Term 2 Enhanced 
Surface Water Treatment Rule, and Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection 
Byproducts Rule are no less stringent than the corresponding federal 
regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve Massachusetts' PWSS 
program revision for these rules.
    The State of Rhode Island has adopted drinking water regulations 
for the Lead and Copper Rule (56 FR 26460-26564) promulgated on June 7, 
1991, the Lead and Copper Minor Revisions Rule (65 FR 1950) promulgated 
on January 12, 2000, the Lead and Copper Short-Term Revisions Rule (72 
FR 57782) promulgated on October 10, 2007, the Ground Water Rule (71 FR 
65574) promulgated on November 8, 2006, and the Stage 2 Disinfectant 
and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (71 FR 388) promulgated on January 4, 
2006. After review of the submitted documentation, EPA has determined 
that the State of Rhode Island's Lead and Copper Rule, Lead and Copper 
Short-Term Revisions Rule, Lead and Copper Minor Revisions Rule, Ground 
Water Rule, and Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule 
are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations, with 
the understanding that the state regulations include a small number of 
typographical errors or other very minor, non-substantive differences 
that the state has agreed to correct. These issues are discussed in 
further detail in EPA's administrative record. Therefore, EPA intends 
to approve Rhode Island's PWSS program revision for these rules.
    The State of Vermont has adopted drinking water regulations for the 
Ground Water Rule (71 FR 65574) promulgated on November 6, 2008, the 
Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (71 FR 654) 
promulgated on January 5, 2006, and the Stage 2 Disinfectant and 
Disinfection Byproducts Rule (71 FR 388) promulgated on January 4, 
2006. After review of the submitted documentation, EPA has determined 
that the State of Vermont's Ground Water Rule, Long Term 2 Enhanced 
Surface Water Treatment Rule, and Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection 
Byproducts Rule are no less stringent than the corresponding federal 
regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve Vermont's PWSS program 
revision for these rules.

DATES: All interested parties may request a public hearing for any of 
the above EPA determinations. A request for a public hearing must be 
submitted within thirty (30) days of this Federal Register publication 
date to the Regional Administrator at the address shown below. 
Frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing may be denied by the

hearing is made by this date, a public hearing will be held. If no 
timely and appropriate request for a hearing is received, and the 
Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on his/her own 
motion, this determination shall become final and effective 30 days 
after the publication of this Federal Register Notice. Any request for 
a public hearing shall include the following information: (1) The name, 
address, and telephone number of the individual organization, or other 
entity requesting a hearing; (2) a brief statement of the requesting 
person's interest in the Regional Administrator's determination; (3)
