The Disinfection Requirements Rule has been published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin at https://www.pabulletin.com/secure/data/vol48/48-17/667.html

 

Effective Date

This final-form rulemaking is effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Based on advisory committee and public comments, this final-form rulemaking includes the following deferred implementation dates:

  •  The submission of a sample siting plan is required 6 months after the effective date to allow time for development of the plan.
  •  The development of a nitrification control plan is required 1 year after the effective date.
  •  The amended monitoring, reporting and treatment technique requirements for the disinfectant residual in the distribution system are required 1 year after the effective date to allow additional time for operational changes and to effectively increase disinfectant residuals to 0.2 milligram per liter (mg/L) throughout the distribution system. If additional time is needed for capital improvements or to complete more substantial operational changes, a system-specific compliance schedule may be requested.
