Update includes setting a limit for E. coli to better protect public health

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has updated the rule for pathogens in drinking water, including setting a limit for E. coli to better protect public health.

The Revised Total Coliform Rule ensures that all of the approximately 155,000 public water systems in the U.S., which provide drinking water to more than 310 million people, take steps to prevent exposure to pathogens like E. coli. These types of pathogens can cause a variety of illnesses, with symptoms such as acute abdominal discomfort or, in more extreme cases, kidney failure or hepatitis.
