AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) plans to conduct a demonstration program on the treatment (reduction and/or removal) of arsenic in drinking water. The U.S. EPA recently promulgated a standard that limits arsenic concentrations in drinking water to 10 ug/l. Through this demonstration program the U.S. EPA intends to identify and evaluate the ability of commercially available technologies and engineering or other approaches to cost effectively meet the new standard in small water systems (<10,000 customers). Through this notice, the U.S. EPA is inviting the public at large, governmental and regulatory agencies, public health agencies, and drinking water utilities to identify small water utilities that may be interested in hosting a demonstration at their facility. Such utilities should be those which will require treatment to comply with the new arsenic standard. This notice does not constitute a procurement.
