Section 19-4-104 gives the Drinking Water Board the authority to establish the general responsibilities of public drinking water systems in Utah. These responsibilities include variances or exemptions from monitoring, construction standards, operator certification, cross connection control, reporting, record maintenance, and emergencies.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments have been received either in support or opposing this rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The continuation of this rule will ensure that public drinking water systems in Utah are adhering to the basic responsibilities of maintaining a safe drinking water system. This rule sets the foundation for the details in rules that follow, such as Rule R309-600 which details the specifics of a source water protection program. This effort will greatly assist in protection the quality and safety of the drinking water from the source through vast distribution systems to the end consumer, the public.
