DEP Invites Comments On Draft Revised Drinking Water Total Coliform Rule Guidance

The Department of Environmental Protection published notice of draft technical guidance on Revised Total Coliform Rule Guidance for public comment in the January 20 PA Bulletin.  (DEP ID: 393-2129-001)
On September 24, 2016, the Department finalized the Revised Total Coliform Rule, which amended 25 Pa. Code Chapter 109 (relating to safe drinking water) by requiring public water systems that are vulnerable to microbial contamination to perform assessments to identify sanitary defects and subsequently take action to correct them.
This technical guidance will clarify coliform monitoring requirements, explain new start-up procedure requirements for seasonal public water systems, and describe the Revised Total Coliform Rule assessment process and provide examples of sanitary defects.
