Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response, Questions, and Guidance

Information regarding the Division of Drinking and Ground Water’s response and guidance to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Regulatory Flexibility has ended as of 8/31/2020.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor’s Stay at Home Order, and social distancing guidelines, your public water system (PWS) may have modified its monitoring, operating, staffing, and/or reporting procedures. 

U.S. EPA announced on June 29, 2020 that federal COVID-19-related regulatory flexibility would end on August 31, 2020. To ensure that Ohio public water systems continue to comply with federal expectations, Ohio EPA also ended all regulatory flexibility provisions on August 31, 2020.  

If you are uncertain whether this applies to your PWS, or if you have questions, please contact your Ohio EPA district office.
