Division of Water Public Hearing on Drinking Water Regulations

On Thursday, August 28 at 6 p.m., the Division of Water will hold a public hearing to receive comments regarding its pending drinking water regulations.  The hearing will be held at the Department of Environmental Protection, 300 Fair Oaks Lane, Room 301D, Frankfort, KY 40601.  The pending regulations are 401 KAR 8:200 (Microbiological monitoring), 8:300 (Lead and copper), and 8:700 (Bottled water) and can be accessed on the Division of Water website at http://water.ky.gov/Pages/RegsInProcess.aspx.

Amendments to the Microbiological Testing regulation (401 KAR 8:200) adopt the federal Revised Total Coliform Rule (40 C.F.R. 141.851 through 861) which requires better sampling techniques, establishes a maximum E. Coli contaminant level, triggers additional assessments, and requires corrective action when sanitary problems are identified.  The amendments also clarify reporting requirements, increase flexibility and improve accuracy in determining “population served.”. The amendments to the Lead and Copper regulation (401 KAR 8:300) adopt the federal Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act of 2011 (42 U.S.C. §300g-6) which became effective on Jan. 4, 2014, and limits lead content in plumbing materials used for drinking water distribution. The proposed changes to the Bottled Water regulation (401 KAR 8:700) reorganize the regulation for clarity and align the requirements for bottle water producers with federal standards for the sources, sampling, testing, treatment, and processing of bottled water, and place specific limits on contaminants for bottled water systems.

The Division will accept written comments until the public comment period ends on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at the close of business.  Written comments must be addressed to:  Carole Catalfo, Esq., Internal Policy Analyst, Division of Water, 200 Fair Oaks Lane, 4th Floor, Frankfort, KY  40601.
