EPA Concludes Consumer Confidence Report Rule Review

Electronic report delivery now available

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has completed its review of the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) Rule and has concluded that drinking water utilities can provide reports about drinking water quality to customers via e-mail or on the Internet instead of mailing a copy of the report. Electronic delivery of these reports, which utilities are required to provide to their customers each year under the Safe Drinking Water Act, is expected to help utilities improve transparency and save resources. The CCR Rule Retrospective Review began in October 2011 and was completed in December 2012.

EPA will hold a webinar on Jan. 17, 2013, 2 to 4 p.m. EST to discuss electronic delivery of the consumer confidence reports.
