In order to sell Water filtration, Water Softeners, Reverse Osmosis drinking water systems and install them, you must be registered with the Department Of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).  About a hand full of years ago, the Colorado Legislature wanted to make the Water Treatment industry a "Master Plumber Only" business.  A group of Colorado water filtration companies work with the Water Quality Association to amend the propose legislation.  The new bipartisan legislation allowed the experts in water treatment to become their own entity.  You must be a water conditioning principle or a plumbing contractor to legally sell and install water softeners in Colorado.  This is for the protection of the Colorado consumer!  

Hard Water, Iron, Low Ph, Silica, High TDS are all common problems in Colorado water.  A Water Treatment Company That is Registered with DORA has the knowledge to do a proper installation of water treatment equipment and the required insurances .

The Water Quality Association says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's revised Lead and Copper Rule offers progress in the battle against lead in drinking water supplies across the United States. Among other things, the new rule requires testing in schools and childcare facilities while also establishing a trigger level to jumpstart lead mitigation earlier and in more communities. Significant for the water treatment and filtration industry, the new rule allows Community Water Systems serving fewer than 10,000 people and all Non-Transient Non-Community Water Systems to elect to maintain point-of-use devices certified to remove lead in place of corrosion control treatment. The EPA approved revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule at the end of 2020 and has released the pre-publication version of the text. Official publication of the rule in the Federal Register is expected soon. Under the new rule, the action level for lead in drinking water will remain at 15 parts per billion, but a new trigger level will be added at 10 parts per billion. Following the testing procedures for public water systems laid out in the rule, additional planning, monitoring, and treatment will be required when lead is detected at or above that trigger level. Additional information can be found at the EPA's website.

State Government Regulation Of Perfluoroalkyl And Polyfluoroalkyl SubstancesConcerning the authority of the state government to regulate perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.SESSION: 2020 Regular SessionSUBJECTS: Public Health State GovernmentBILL SUMMARY

The act addresses the authority of the state government to regulate perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

Section 1 of the act addresses when PFAS may be used for firefighting foam system testing both in general and in certain aircraft hangars.

Section 2 requires the solid and hazardous waste commission to promulgate rules for both a certificate of registration for any facility, fire department, or lessee subject to federal rules and regulations that uses or stores PFAS in its operations and for standards for the capture and disposal of PFAS.

Section 3 prohibits the use of class B firefighting foam that contains intentionally added PFAS in certain aircraft hangars beginning January 1, 2023.

The act appropriates $43,836 from the hazardous waste service fund to the department of public health and environment for use by the hazardous materials and waste management division.

The above is the result of the PFAS contamination being found in Colorado Drinking Water!
