EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF24 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: National Primary Drinking Water Regulations; Arsenic and Clarifications to Compliance and New Source Contaminants Monitoring(Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: On January 22, 2001, EPA revised the Maximum Contaminant Level(MCL) for arsenic to 0.010 mg/L (10.0 g/L). This regulation applies to non-transient non-community water systems and to community water systems (66 FR 6976). While EPA has taken steps to evaluate and mitigate impacts on small entities as part of the promulgation of the Arsenic Rule, EPA reviewed the National Primary Drinking Water Rule (NPDWR) for arsenic pursuant to section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 610). As part of this review, EPA considered and solicited comments on the following factors: (1) The continued need for the rule; (2) the nature of complaints or comments received concerning the rule; (3) the complexity of the rule; (4) the extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal, State, or local government rules; and (5) the degree to which the technology, economic conditions or other factors have changed in the area affected by the rule. EPA is currently reviewing the public comments received in response to this review and is developing a response to comment document, which will be posted in the docket (#EPA-OW-2010-0728) upon completion of this review by fall 2011.
