Pennsylvania’s proposed Groundwater Rule sets new requirements for community groundwater systems with respect to treatment, monitoring and reporting, public notification, and dealing with significant deficiencies in a treatment facility. Operators and managers of groundwater systems should prepare for this upcoming regulation by becoming fully acquainted with the rule’s requirements and planning for any system or process changes that may be necessary to ensure compliance. This course is designed to provide operators and managers of community groundwater systems with an understanding of their upcoming responsibilities under Pennsylvania’s proposed Groundwater Rule. Participants will be given an overview of the rule along with detailed explanations of the treatment technique requirements, monitoring and reporting requirements, and other key rule components. In addition to general rule information, participants will be provided with, and instructed on how to use, an Excel spreadsheet developed by DEP as a tool for planning for and determining compliance with the Groundwater Rule’s treatment technique requirement.
