Notice of tentative approval.
Notice is hereby given that the State of Missouri is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. The State of Missouri has adopted drinking water regulations requiring Consumer Confidence Reporting, that correspond to federal regulations published by EPA on August 19, 1998 (63 FR 44512); Administrative Penalty authority, that correspond to federal regulations published by EPA on April 28, 1998, (63 FR 23361); and variance and exemption requirements. EPA has determined that these revisions are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA intends to approve these State program revisions.
