BILL NUMBER: S2841 SPONSOR: KAPLAN TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to requiring 1,4-Dioxane testing of public water systems that serve less than 10,000 individuals PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Current federal law requires all public water systems that serve more than 10,000 individuals to test for a maximum of 30 unregulated contam- inants. Under the last Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR), the results of which were released over the Summer of 2016, the contam- inant 1,4-Dioxane was found to be in over 70% of tested wells on Long Island. This legislation will close the federal loophole and require public water systems serving 10,000 individuals or less to test for the presence of 1,4-Dioxane. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
