Why the LT2 Rule is here to stay

We’ve been ordered to comply with the EPA Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, which is commonly known as the LT2 Rule. The LT2 Rule is intended to improve your drinking water and provide protection from waterborne diseases and contaminants.

In 2016, the LT2 Rule and many others will undergo a periodic review that is required every 6 years. Some people think this means the LT2 Rule could be eliminated, but the fact is that the law requires that any revision to the regulation “must maintain or provide for greater protection.”
