EPA Drinking Water Update

EPA seeks input on regulatory revisions of eight National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWRs) included in the Microbial and Disinfection Byproducts (MDBP) rules.

As part of the potential regulatory revision effort, EPA has requested that the NDWAC provide the agency with advice and recommendation on key issues related to potential revisions to MDBP rules. The work of the NDWAC is supported by an MDBP Rule Revisions Working Group. This is important to WWEMA members because it could result in treatment technologies changes or influence decisions of utilities faced with new regulations.

The next meeting of the MDBP Rule Revisions Working Group will be a virtual meeting held on Tuesday, October 31 and Thursday, November 2, 2023, from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm ET each day. This meeting is intended to include discussions on the initial draft report outline and emergent recommendations on revisions to the Surface Water Treatment Rules and the Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rules from the Working Group to the NDWAC, as well as additional discussions on interventions and responses to Working Group requests.
