Public Notice: State of Missouri - Public Water Supply Supervision Program

Publish Date: 03/02/2020


Notice of Approval of Primacy Revision Application for Public Water Supply Supervision Program

Solicitation of Requests for Public Hearing

EPA is hereby giving notice that the state of Missouri is revising its approved Public Water Supply Supervision Program. EPA has determined that these revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these program revisions.

Missouri has adopted: Lead and Copper Rule: Short-Term Regulatory Revisions and Clarifications (72 FR 57781, Oct. 10, 2007); and Revised Total Coliform Rule (78 FR 10269, Feb. 13, 2013).

All interested parties may request a public hearing on the approval. A request for a public hearing must be submitted in writing by April 1, 2020, to the Regional Administrator at the EPA Region 7 address shown below.

Insubstantial requests for a hearing may be denied by the Regional Administrator. However, if a substantial request is made by April 1, 2020, a public hearing will be held. If no timely and appropriate request for a hearing is received, and the Regional Administrator does not elect to hold a hearing on his own motion, this determination will become effective on April 1, 2020.

Any request for a public hearing shall include the following information: 1) name, address and telephone number of the individual, organization or other entity requesting a hearing; 2) a brief statement of the requesting individual/organization’s interest in the Regional Administrator’s determination and a brief statement about the information that the requesting individual/organization intends to submit at such hearing; and 3) the signature of the individual making the request or, if the request is made on behalf of an organization or other entity, the signature of a responsible official of the organization or other entity.
