In last week’s Legislative Update, the League reported that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a memo authorizing municipal water systems to deliver annual Consumer Confidence Reports electronically. 

The methods that Texas public water systems can use to deliver CCRs to their customers and certify that the report has been distributed and is accurate are established under 30 Texas Administrative Code §290.274.  Since the EPA released its memo, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has informed the League that TCEQ staff is revising their current CCR delivery requirements and certification process to align with the recent EPA authorization.   

TCEQ will coordinate through the stakeholder process to develop new Texas CCR delivery guidelines to ensure that direct delivery requirements are met, and the League will share the results of that process as they come available.  In the meantime, municipal water systems should continue reporting as they have been.
