PUBLIC NOTICE | Public Water System Supervision Program Revision for the State of Arizona

Notice is hereby given that the State of Arizona revised its approved Public Water System Supervision (PWSS) Program under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) by adopting the Public Notice (PN) Rule, Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) Rule, Public Water System (PWS) Definition and Administrative Penalty Authority. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that these revisions by the State of Arizona are no less stringent than the corresponding Federal regulations and otherwise meet applicable SDWA primacy requirements. Therefore, the EPA intends to approve these revisions as part of the State of Arizona's PWSS Program.

Any interested party may request a public hearing from EPA on this determination. A request for a public hearing must be submitted to EPA by January 21, 2020, to the Regional Administrator of EPA Region 9, to this address: United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 9, Drinking Water Management Section, 75 Hawthorne Street (WTR-4-1), San Francisco, California 94105. The Regional Administrator may deny frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing. If a substantial request for a public hearing is made by January 21, 2020, EPA Region 9 will hold a public hearing. Any request for a public hearing shall include the following information: 1. The name, address, and telephone number of the individual, organization, or other entity requesting a hearing; 2. A brief statement of the requesting person's or organization's interest in the Regional Administrator's determination and a brief statement of the information that the requesting person intends to submit at such hearing; and 3. The signature of the individual making the request, or, if the request is made on behalf of an organization or other entity, the signature of a responsible official of the organization or other entity.

If EPA Region 9 does not receive a timely and substantive request for a hearing and the Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on his own motion on the determination at issue in this notice, the EPA's approval shall become final and effective on January 21, 2020, and no further public notice will be issued.
