WASHINGTON, DC, Dec. 1, 2008 -- EPA has developed the Corrective Actions Guidance Manual to support implementation of the Ground Water Rule. The rule, which will apply to approximately 147,000 public water systems that use ground water as a source of drinking water, establishes a risk-based approach to target systems that are vulnerable to fecal contamination. Public water systems must comply with the rule by December 2009.

The guidance will assist states and public water systems to select and implement corrective actions in response to significant deficiencies identified during sanitary surveys or in response to fecal contamination of source water as required under the rule.
