Frequent Questions

The Consumer Confidence Report Rule requires annual water quality reports to contain additional health information addressing special populations who may be immuno-compromised. Must this additional information also be included in public notifications requ

The additional health information addressing immuno-compromised persons required in consumer confidence reports (CCRs) is not required in any public notifications. However, the Public Notification Rule requires the inclusion of health effect language referring to the special health risk for infants, young children, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems when fecal coliform or E.coli is present. This health effect language is not required for any other violation (65 FR 25982, 26043; May 4, 2000).
