Title: Consumer Confidence Report Rule Revisions 

The America's Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) was enacted on October 23, 2018. Section 2008 Improved Consumer Confidence Reports amended the Safe Drinking Water Act section 1414(c)(4) to revise requirements for Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR). The amendments to section 1414(c)(4) require EPA to: (1) Revise CCR content requirements to increase the readability, clarity, and understandability of the information presented in consumer confidence reports; increase the accuracy of information presented, and risk communication, in consumer confidence reports; identify any lead action level exceedance for which corrective action has been required; and include information on corrosion control efforts. (2) Update delivery timing and methods to require community water systems that serve 10,000 or more persons to provide reports biannually; and allow electronic delivery methods consistent with the Safe Drinking Water Act's "Consumer Confidence Report Rule Delivery Options"' issued by the EPA on January 3, 2013. The amendments require the EPA to consult with public water systems, environmental groups, public interest groups, risk communication experts, the states, and other interested parties during the revision process.
