WITHDRAWAL AND REFILING OF CR-101 FOR CHAPTER 246-290 WAC - WSR 02-19-061
The Division of Drinking Water would like to withdraw the
CR-101 for the federal arsenic rule and refile to more
accurately describe what is being considered for rule making.
The federal rule only applies to community and nontransient
noncommunity water systems while excluding transient
noncommunity (TNC) water systems. The Environmental
Protection Agency states that health risks associated with
arsenic are from long-term exposure, and that short-term
exposures to arsenic should not cause a measurable health
impact. However, most TNC water systems have some number of
users that are permanent residents and these systems rarely
serve a 100% transitory population. The department would like
to consider applying the federal arsenic standard to TNC
systems in this rule-making effort.
For more information, please contact Theresa Phillips,
Rules Coordinator at (360) 236-3147.
