EPA is asking for comments

Postby ronperrin » Wed Sep 22, 2010 5:36 pm

Since 1997 my company has used ROV's to inspect potable water storage tanks.
I know how important tank inspections are, For the first time ever the EPA is considering REQUIRING all water storage tanks to be Inspected and cleaned as part of the NEW TOTAL Coliform Rule.

EPA has EXTENDED Comment period for New Rules TIME SENSATIVE!

Please remove this post after October 13th 2010.

If you have ever inspected a water storage tank and know how much sediment some aquire they want to hear from you! The EPA has extended the comment period until October 13th 2010
