State Updates

  • Minnesota Department of Health issues its annual report on drinking water system surveillance program
    Commentary: It is noteworthy that in the "Land of 10,000 Lakes," only 23 of the state's 964 community water systems get their drinking water from surface water sources. It is reported that: "Minnesota’s public water supply operators have one of the best records in the nation regarding compliance with ... sampling and testing requirements." A possible explanation: "To lessen the burden on water supply operators, most of the required samples are collected by field staff from MDH."

Regulatory Compliance Strategies for New LT2 and DBP Rules

 The EPA's new Long-Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) and Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) were recently released, so it's time to get prepared with strategies that really work — and Malcolm Pirnie can help!

EPA estimates that almost 3,000 public water systems will have to update their water treatment processes to comply with the new regulations. Multiple barrier strategies provide added protection — just like an insurance policy. Examples of the barriers that will help with compliance are membranes, UV disinfection, granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration, and disinfection with chloramines. Each must be carefully considered and tailored to meet the needs of your utility.

To learn more about the new regulations and find out which treatment strategies are right for you, please contact Zaid Chowdhury, zchowdhury@pirnie.com, or visit www.mcguireinc.com/LT2/index.html.
