This week's NEWS

There may be devils in the details of proposed "lead free" SDWA amendments. What is in the water that one San Francisco newspaper's headline writer is drinking? It sure isn't the chloramines! Meantime, the finger pointing at chloramines has spread across the continent and the Pacific Ocean. EPA Region 9 uses Admin Orders to swat a fly or two re: UCMR... but were they justified? EPA lead rule and simultaneous compliance workshops in St. Louis: panelists, agendas and discussion papers available. If you don't trust your water utility's lab results, just put a sample in the mail... sure!

Early Monitoring For LT2 Compliance

Quality services that ensure safe drinking water -- McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. Due to limited approved lab capacity, USEPA has stated its intent to grandfather Cryptosporidium data collected by utilities prior to finalization of the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule later this year. McGuire Environmental Consultants (MEC) has teamed up with Clancy Environmental Consultants (CEC) to offer their clients early monitoring and consulting services. CEC is a USEPA-approved LT2 lab, and MEC, with wide expertise in treatment for Cryptosporidium and other pathogenic microorganisms, can provide assistance with LT2 compliance based on the results of early monitoring.

If your utility will be subject to LT2 regulations, contact us to learn about the advantages of early monitoring. Please click here to learn more or contact Michael MacPhee at mmacphee@mcguireinc.com for more information.

Fluoridation
UCMR
  • Redlands, CA given EPA admin order for minor UCMR reporting deviation
    (Riverside Press Enterprise, May 8 - free registration required)
    Commentary: Utilities in Region 9 are scratching their collective heads trying to figure out why the EPA staff would not have picked up the phone and asked "Did you take that sample and report the results?" instead of relying on the problematical electronic lab-utility data transfer system to determine noncompliance with UCMR requirements. Others are perplexed at answers they are getting when they demonstrate to EPA that the Admin Order was issued in error such as "Yeah, we realize it was an error but we don't have any way to withdraw it."
