With the next round of drinking water regulations coming out, the water industry will have to be on alert. Upcoming regulatory requirements include a Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (Stage 2 DBPR), the Long-Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR), and the Ground Water Rule. Implementation schedules for some of the regulations are very tight, so utilities will not be able to depend on state assistance to get started on required monitoring.
