"Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 3 (UCMR 3) - What you Need to Know"
Jessie Varab, UL
The objective of this presentation will be to provide an overview of the regulation which will include key timelines, applicability, monitoring requirements, reporting requirements, and identify the differences between UCMR3 and the previous UCMR. Information on the cost of the regulation will be discussed as well as things to be aware of when comparing quotes from multiple laboratories. Some focus on the analyte lists which will include the analytical methods used to acquire data. The methods will be broken down to include basic instrumentation information, sampling techniques and locations, preservation and bottle requirements. Due to the potential of contamination during collection, there will be a significant amount of time spent discussing proper collection technique and a video will be shown.

"Stage 2 Disinfectant Disinfection By-Products Operational
Mary Reed, Illinois Environment Protection Agency (IEPA)
The Stage DBPR requires
systems to conduct operational evaluations, initiated by the operational
evaluation levels (OEL) found in Stage 2 DBPR compliance monitoring, and to
submit an operational evaluation report to the State. The OELs initiate a
comprehensive review of system operations and act as an early warning for a
possible Stage 2 DBPR violation in the following quarter. This early warning allows
systems to act to prevent the violation.
