EPA Seeks Small Entity Representatives For SBREFA Panel On Proposed PFAS National Primary Drinking Water Regulation
EPA is now recruiting small entity representatives for a possible SBREFA panel on a rulemaking to develop a National Primary Drinking Water Regulation (NPDWR) for certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), including perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) . NPDWRs create maximum contaminant levels that apply to public water systems. A SBREFA panel would consult with small entities directly regulated by any final regulation on the possible economic impacts and regulatory alternatives to minimize those impacts.
A small entity for purposes of this rulemaking is a water system that serves a retail population of 10,000 or fewer.
