Stage 2 Compliance Solution

Sampling and reporting requirements under the EPA Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2 rule) and the EPA Stage 2 Disinfectant and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (Stage 2 DBP rule) apply to all water utilities. The Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule requires municipal water operators to maintain a disinfectant residual at every individual point in the water storage and distribution system.  Stage 2 compliance rules strictly limit the amount of disinfectants operators may use as well as the levels of DBPs allowed in the system.  Simultaneous compliance with these new rules is a significant challenge for many municipal water systems and their operators. Furthermore, sampling rules, which will no longer allow systems to mask localized problems by averaging data from multiple points. Systems must comply at each individual sampling point. For this reason alone, many systems in compliance under Stage 1 DBP rules struggle to be compliant under Stage 2 DBP rules. Stabilizing water quality in the storage and distribution system is a practical and cost-effective approach to resolving this dilemma. Blue Earth Products selection of NSF certified chemical formulas are directed at cleaning the storage and distribution system and keeping it clean. Removing organic and inorganic deposits from tanks, basins and distribution pipes stabilizes free chlorine and chloramine residuals and removes the biological substrates that contribute to the formation of additional disinfection by-products within distribution. To help your system achieve simultaneous compliance, Blue Earth Products will develop a customized solution to clean the water treatment facility, existing infrastructure, and entire distribution system, including pipes, valves and meters.
