Water Regulations

By  | 

Alabama environmental officials will consider changes to some drinking water regulations at a scheduled meeting Tuesday.

A spokesman says the commission will consider proposed amendments to some drinking water regulations to conform to federal EPA comments on previously approved regulations on water quality monitoring and related issues.

The commission also could adopt proposed amendments to regulations in order to revise the water use classification of a ten-ten mile stretch of the Coosa River in the Logan Martin Lake area in Saint Clair, Calhoun and Talladega counties. This part of the river runs from Broken Arrow Creek near Pell City to Trout Creek near Ragland.

The commission is expected to add the "public water supply" use classification to the current designation.

The Alabama Environmental Management Commission meeting at 1:30 p.m. is open to the public. It will be held in the main hearing room of the Alabama Department of Environmental Management in Montgomery.
