Navigating the Revised Total Coliform Rule: 2 p.m. CST Sept. 28 Click Here to Register
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published the Revised Total Coliform Rule in the Federal Register on February 13, 2013 – 78 FR 10269. All public water systems must comply with the requirements of the rule starting April 1. The RTCR addresses fecal contamination through routine monitoring for total coliforms and E. coli, level 1 and Level 2 assessments, and corrective actions if the PWS identifies a vulnerability to coliform contamination. This webinar will focus on field scenarios to better understand primacy agency implementation discretion and public water systems compliance with: Multiple level 1 and level 2 treatment technique triggers in a month; Resetting the second level 1 treatment technique trigger to a level 1 assessment; and “Expedited” actions as applied to E. coli events vs. non-E. coli events. The presenter will also address other areas of RTCR implementation discretion and PWS requirements.
