Notice of tentative approval and solicitation of requests for a public hearing.


Notice is hereby given in accordance with the provision of section 1413 of the Safe Drinking Water Act as amended, and the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations Implementation that the Commonwealth of Virginia has revised its approved Public Water System Supervision Primacy Program. Specifically, Virginia has revised its Administrative Penalty Authority. EPA has determined that this program revision satisfies the requirements of the Federal regulations. Therefore, EPA has decided to tentatively approve the program revisions. All interested parties are invited to submit written comments on this determination and may request a public hearing.


Comments or a request for a public hearing must be submitted by October 2, 2000. This determination shall become effective on October 2, 2000 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, and if no comments are received which cause EPA to modify its tentative approval.


Comments or a request for a public hearing must be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region III, 1650 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103-2029.
