Presentation I – Stage 2 Disinfectant Byproducts Regulatory Review and Implementation Challenges:  This presentation will review the Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) monitoring and reporting requirements, Stage 2 monitoring plans and plan revisions, reduced and increased monitoring, consecutive system issues, and operational evaluations. It will also review the treatment technique requirements of the Stage 1 DBPR that PWSs must continue to satisfy.  (Presented by Michael Finn, P.E. – EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW).)

Presentation II – Small System DBP Challenges and Solutions in Washington State:  Washington State has over 1,100 small community and non-transient non-community water systems that serve less than 3,300 people and are required to comply with the DBPRs. Most of the DBP maximum contaminant level exceedances in the state have been in these small systems. These systems include both surface water and groundwater sources. This presentation will give a summary of some of the water quality challenges facing these small systems and highlight a few success stories.  (Presented by Jolyn Leslie, P.E. – Washington State Department of Health (WSDOH).)
