Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing to readopt the Safe Drinking Water Act Rules without change. In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, N.J.S.A. 52:14B-1 et seq., the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) rules at N.J.A.C. 7:10, are scheduled to expire on November 4, 2009.  This expiration date is extended by 180 days to May 3, 2010 pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:14B-5.1c by the timely filing of this notice of proposal.  The SDWA rules establish the State primary and secondary drinking water regulations for public and nonpublic water systems, construction standards, fees, physical connections between an approved and an unapproved water supply, and provisions regarding civil administrative penalties and adjudicatory hearings under the New Jersey Safe Drinking Water Act, N.J.S.A. 58:12A-1 et seq.  The Department has evaluated the rules and has determined that they are necessary, reasonable, and proper for the purpose for which they were originally promulgated.
