In this episode of Checking In: A Series With WQP, WQP Managing Editor Lauren Del Ciello checks in with Stephanie Tanner, lead engineer for the U.S. EPA's WaterSense Program, on EPA's recently published Notice of Intent (NOI) to consider drafting a WaterSense specification for point-of-use (POU) reverse osmosis (RO) systems. Tanner explains background on the WaterSense program and why EPA has potentially identified a need for a WaterSense specification for POU RO systems. She explains the key takeaways stakeholders and manufacturers should be aware of from the 20-page NOI, as well as what standards EPA is looking at to provide a framework for developing the scope. Finally, Tanner outlines specific feedback and input EPA is seeking from industry stakeholders regarding the NOI and how interested parties can share their perspective.
