EPA's Rad Water Law
#1
EPA Comments due by 25 July PAG Rad Drinking Water https://www.epa.gov/radiation/protective...uides-pags 

Protective Action Guides (PAGs) read more like ensuring people's health and our environment (wildlife, pets, flora) will be impacted greatly in case of nuclear incidents. As of 15 July, 5,087 comments were submitted.

Excerpt:

During a radiological emergency, radioactive material could be released into the rivers, lakes, and streams used by public water suppliers. EPA is proposing non-regulatory guidance that authorities can use to protect residents from experiencing the harmful effects from radiation in drinking water following an emergency. EPA is seeking public comment on the proposed drinking water Protective Action Guide (PAG) for Radiological Incidents for up to 45 days following publication in the Federal Register.

The purpose of EPA’s Protective Active Guide (PAG) for Radiological Incidents is to guide planning and decision-making efforts by local and state officials. It is not intended for long-term or everyday use. The proposed PAG does not affect EPA’s drinking water standards for radionuclides. Therefore, affected public water systems are expected to take actions to return to compliance with drinking water standards after a radiological emergency as soon as practicable.
