Chapter 109 Update

Dear Water Community:

Two weeks ago, I sent you an e-mail about posting documents to WWOAP’s website.  One of these documents (Chapter 109 Outline of Subchapters) is now posted to our DEP website.  I’m also posting the one hour reporting documents listed below.  These resources are now posted under the regulations section of the “Drinking Water Standards, Regulations and Resources” page at this link:

1. Chapter 109 Outline of Subchapters

2. One Hour Reporting Violations or Situations fact sheet (3900-FS-DEP4367)

3. Groundwater CWS One Hour Reporting poster (3900-SI-BSDW0475)

4. Surface Water CWS One Hour Reporting poster (3900-SI-BSDW0474)

The One Hour Reporting Violations or Situations fact sheet includes all situations for both surface water and groundwater systems.  It’s a useful sheet that describes the actual conditions of violating the MCL, MRDL, or treatment techniques.  The two single-sided posters summarize the violations based on whether you have to comply with surface water requirements or groundwater requirements.  I’m currently distributing a laminated poster to each of the DEP District Offices for their community and nontransient noncommunity water systems.  Hopefully, you will be getting this poster from your DEP sanitarian soon.

I hope you find these resources helpful to you.  Please share this e-mail with others who may benefit from these resources.  Thanks!
