The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)
What Every Community Public Water System Must Know
EPA Safe Drinking Water Act - Consumer Confidence Report Delivery Options
Effective January 2013 TCEQ will be allowing water system to electronically direct deliver their CCR per EPA guidance. Over the past few years, a number of community water systems, technical assistance providers and primacy agencies have inquired as to whether the CCR Rule allows electronic delivery of the CCR to each customer. EPA evaluated several electronic delivery methods to determine which forms meet existing CCR Rule requirements as a part of the CCR Rule Retrospective Review. This EPA interpretive memorandum SDWA – Consumer Confidence Report Rule Delivery Options, dated January 2013, clarifies the requirements of the CCR Rule associated with the delivery of the CCR. You can also find a copy of this memorandum on the EPA Website at: http://water.epa.gov/lawsregs/rulesregs/sdwa/ccr/regulations.cfm
