Notice of tentative approval.
Notice is hereby given that the State of Tennessee is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. Tennessee has adopted drinking water regulations establishing administrative penalty authority, and which revise the definition of a Public Water System. EPA has determined that the administrative penalty authority revisions meet all minimum federal requirements, and that the Public Water System definition revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these State program revisions.
