The State of North Carolina is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. North Carolina has adopted drinking water regulations requiring consumer confidence reports from all community water systems. EPA has determined that this revision is no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA has tentatively decided to approve this State program revision.
All interested parties may request a public hearing. A request for a public hearing must be submitted by March 30, 2001 to the Regional Administrator at the address shown below. Frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing may be denied by the Regional Administrator. However, if a substantial request for a public hearing is made by March 30, 2001, a public hearing will be held. If no timely and appropriate request for a hearing is received and the Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on his own motion, this determination shall become final and effective on March 30, 2001.
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 interest in the Regional Administrator's determination and a brief statement of the information that the requesting person intends to submit at such hearing; (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.
All documents relating to this determination are available for inspection between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the following offices: North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Public Water Supply Section, Parker- Lincoln Building, 2728 Capital Boulevard, Raleigh, North Carolina 27604. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 4, Drinking Water Section, 61 Forsyth Street Southwest, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.
