Agreement Reached on Total Coliform Rule Revisions

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and drinking water stakeholder groups have approved an agreement in principle on proposed revisions to the Total Coliform Rule (TCR). A major difference between the proposal and the existing rule is that the new rule will place a much greater emphasis on addressing intrusion of bacterial contamination in drinking water treatment and, especially, distribution.
