Joint EPA/State ECOS Agreement to Pursue Regulatory Innovation

Alternative Treatment Technique for National Primary Drinking Water Lead and Copper Regulations for Certain Non-Transient, Non-Community Water Systems

EPA Region 5 is proposing to issue a variance under section 1415(a)(3) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) for certain Non-Transient, Non-Community Water Systems (NTNCWSs) in the State of Michigan.

The final SDWA variance would be used to implement a project entitled "Use of Flushing to Meet the Federal Lead/Copper Regulation for Nontransient Noncommunity Public Water Supply Systems." This project is being proposed under the Joint EPA/State Agreement to Pursue Regulatory Innovation between the EPA and the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS).

All written comments on the SDWA draft variance should be sent to: Miguel Del Toral, USEPA Region 5, Ground Water and Drinking Water Branch, Mailcode WG-15J, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois, 60604.
