Acceptance of Rulemaking Petition for Study

[47 Pa.B. 4986]
[Saturday, August 26, 2017]

 On August 15, 2017, the Environmental Quality Board (Board) accepted a rulemaking petition for study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (relating to Environmental Quality Board policy for processing petitions—statement of policy). The petition, submitted by the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, requests the amendment of 25 Pa. Code Chapter 109 (relating to safe drinking water) to establish a maximum contaminant level for Perfluoro-octanoic Acid not to exceed six parts per trillion.

 Under the Board's acceptance of the petition, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will prepare a report evaluating the petition. This report will include a recommendation on whether the Board should proceed with a proposed rulemaking and, if so, the process that the Department would need to undertake to develop a proposed rulemaking.

 The previously-referenced petition is available to the public by contacting the Environmental Quality Board, P.O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, (717) 787-4526, and is accessible on the Department's web site at (select ''Public Participation,'' then ''Environmental Quality Board (EQB),'' then ''2017 Meetings,'' under ''Meeting Agendas/Minutes/Handouts,'' see ''August 15, 2017'').
