The TCEQ adopted rules amending 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 290 – Public Drinking Water to provide consistency with the federal RTCR.  The RTCR establishes a maximum contaminant level (MCL) for E. coli and uses E. coli and total coliforms to initiate a “find and fix” approach to prevent fecal contamination from entering the distribution system of a public water supply.

Topics covered during the workshop include an overview of the RTCR, Site Sampling Plan preparation, monitoring and reporting, field assessment, and corrective actions.  Licensed water operators can receive up to 4 hours of CEUs for attending.
