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 rules governing National Primary Drinking Water Regulations that the State of Delaware has revised its approved Public Water System Supervision Primacy Program. Specifically, Delaware has revised its Administrative Penalty Authority and its definition of a public water system.

All interested parties are invited to submit written comments on this determination and may request a public hearing.
