PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The state board of health is withdrawing the CR-101 for revising the maximum arsenic contaminant level for Group B public water systems filed on September 12, 2002, and published as WSR 02-19-060. The original proposal was to consider lowering the maximum contaminant level for arsenic from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. Since the filing of WSR 02-19-060, the state board of health has done a thorough evaluation of the entire Group B program within the department of health. It has been determined that the scope of this preproposal is not broad enough. For this reason, the CR-101 is not needed. The state board of health will be filing a new CR-101 that clearly states the purpose and scope of possible rule making.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Ned Therien, health policy advisor, state board of health, at (360) 236-4103 or email@example.com.
