Details The purpose of this hearing is to receive comments on proposed changes to Title 179, Chapter 20 of the Nebraska Administrative Code (NAC) Laboratory Certification and Agreement Requirements for Testing Drinking Water. The purpose of the proposed changes is to bring the regulations into compliance with the statutory changes made to the Nebraska Safe Drinking Water Act in 2016. Prior to the statutory changes, all compliance testing for public drinking water systems, with the exception of coliform testing, has been conducted at the DHHS Division of Public Health Environmental Health Laboratory. Analytical laboratories in and outside of Nebraska will now be able to conduct compliance drinking water laboratory testing for Nebraska public water systems. The current draft regulations reflect proposed changes made to the text following an initial public hearing held in May 2017.
