Public Water System Supervision Program Revision for the State of Arkansas
Document Number: E8-8331
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Notice is hereby given that the State of Arkansas is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. Arkansas has adopted the Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DDBPR) to increase public health protection by reducing the potential risk of adverse health effects associated with disinfection byproducts throughout the distribution system. In addition, the State of Arkansas has adopted the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) to improve public health protection through the control of microbial contaminants by focusing on systems with elevated Cryptosporidium risk. EPA has determined that the proposed Stage 2 DDBPR and LT2ESWTR revisions submitted by Arkansas are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA proposes to approve these program revisions.
