PUBLIC NOTICE | Public Water System Supervision Program Revision for the State of Arizona

The State of Arizona has revised its approved Public Water System Supervision (PWSS) Program under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) by adopting the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR), LCR Minor Revisions, and LCR Short Term Revisions. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that these revisions by the State of Arizona are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations and otherwise meet applicable SDWA primacy requirements. Therefore, the EPA intends to approve these revisions as part of the State of Arizona's PWSS Program.
