The Public Health and Health Planning Council will hold the following meeting on Thursday, July 30, 2020 via live Webcasting at the following link: https://www.health.ny.gov/events/webcasts/.

*The Public Health and Health Planning Council's Committee on Codes, Regulations and Legislation will convene at 9:30 a.m. (previously re-scheduled from July 16, 2020).

*The Public Health and Health Planning Council will hold its Full Council Meeting immediately following the Codes Committee.

*Among other actions, the full council will consider for adoption Amendment of Subpart 5-1 of Title 10 NYCRR - Maximum Contaminant Levels.

This proposal would amend Subpart 5-1 to incorporate maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for three emerging contaminants: perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and 1,4-dioxane in drinking water. These contaminants are not specifically regulated under the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Act and were the subject of review and recommendation from the Drinking Water Quality Council. The proposed MCLs are consistent with the recommendations from the Drinking Water Quality Council and will apply to all public water supplies regulated by the Department.
