Safe Drinking Water Program Fees; Withdrawal of Proposed Rulemaking

The Environmental Quality Board (Board), at the direction of Chairperson Michael L. Krancer, is withdrawing the proposed safe drinking water program fees rulemaking from further consideration. The proposed rulemaking, which was approved by the Board at the Board’s November 16, 2010, meeting, proposed new and revised fees for community water systems, bottled, vended, retail and bulk water systems and public water systems to supplement State costs for administering the Commonwealth’s Drinking Water Program. In subsequent review of the proposed rulemaking after Board action, it was determined that there is no compelling justification for an increase in fees that would most likely be passed on to the customers of public water systems. The rulemaking is currently being reviewed for form and legality by the Office of Attorney General; however, by the Board’s formal withdrawal of the rulemaking, further action on the proposed rulemaking is suspended.

Questions concerning the withdrawal of the safe drinking water program fees rulemaking should be directed to Michele Tate, Regulatory Coordinator, Department of Environmental Protection, (717) 783-8727,
