Notice is hereby given that the State of South Carolina is revising its approved Public Water System Supervision Program. South Carolina has adopted drinking water regulations revising the interim enhanced surface water treatment rule and disinfection by-product rule. EPA has determined that the interim enhanced surface water treatment rule and disinfection by-product rule revisions meet all minimum federal requirements, and are no less stringent than the corresponding federal regulations. Therefore, EPA has tentatively decided to approve these State program revisions.
All interested parties may request a public hearing. A request for a public hearing must be submitted by June 24, 2002 to the Regional Administrator at the address shown below. Frivolous or insubstantial requests for a hearing may be denied by the Regional Administrator. However, if a substantial Start Printed Page 36185request for a public hearing is made by June 24, 2002, a public hearing will be held. 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, this determination shall become final and effective on June 24, 2002. Any request for a public hearing shall include the following information: (1) The name, address, and telephone number of the individual, organization, or other entity requesting a hearing.
