Disinfectant Residuals, Byproducts and Precursors in Drinking Water
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
On December 16, 1998, federal regulations were promulgated that required water systems to comply with a combination of new maximum contaminent levels (MCLs), maximum residual disinfectant levels (MRDLs), and a treatment technique to improve control of disinfectants and disinfection byproducts. The Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) applies to all utilities defined as community or nontransient noncommunity systems that treat their water with a chemical disinfectant. Under primacy, California is required to adopt the federal DBPR requirements; therefore, once adopted, California water systems will comply with the new MCLs, MRDLs, and treatment technique for disinfectants and disinfection byproducts.
