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.

EPA Awards $15 Million to Assist Small Systems

Clean & Green

Elevated levels of arsenic, iron and manganese prompted the Resort Village of Kannata Valley in Saskatchewan, Canada — a community of 149 households situated on the north shore of Last Mountain Lake, approximately 50 km northwest of Regina — to seek a treatment solution for its drinking water. The community water system is served by an artesian well that provides drinking water for approximately 250 residents. In November 2009, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was selected by the community to supply an arsenic, iron, manganese and turbidity treatment system.
