Draft Endnotes for Draft Recharge Regulations Last Updated: September 18, 2007 Page 1 of 6 Draft Endnotes for Draft Groundwater Recharge Reuse Regulations These draft endnotes accompany the draft recharge regulations currently being developed by the California Department of Public Health’s Drinking Water Program. The draft recharge regulations address the supplementation of groundwater by surface spreading or subsurface injection of treated municipal wastewater prior to eventual extraction via drinking water wells for potable use. The latest version of the draft regulations is here: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/healthinfo/environhealth/water/Pages/Waterrecycling.aspxENDNOTE 1. §60320.030. Control of Regulated Chemicals and Physical Characteristics New Regulated Contaminants Subsection (a)(1) refers to regulated contaminants. Among contaminants that are likely to have MCLs in the future are chromium-6, and 1,2,3-trichloropropane. ENDNOTE 2. §60320.047. Additional Constituent Monitoring Analytical Methods for Unregulated Chemicals. Subsection (a) states that the GRPP shall conduct the following and report any detections. Some of the chemicals will have analytical methods that are available. Some may not. CDPH views the use of drinking water methods as most appropriate, since they are generally more sensitive than wastewater methods. However, this may not always be possible, since there may be characteristics of the wastewater (e.g., high total dissolved solids) that may make the use of drinking water methods difficult. GRRPs should select methods for non-regulated chemicals according to the following approach. 1. Use CDPH-approved drinking water methods, if available.
