This document presents the analysis of the impacts of the proposed Ground Water Rule (GWR). The proposed GWR has been developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) working with States and other interested stakeholders. The primary goal of the proposed GWR is to improve public health by identifying public ground water systems that are now, or are likely to become, fecally contaminated, and to insure adequate measures are taken to remove or inactivate pathogens in drinking water provided to the public by these systems. This document provides: a description of the need for the rule, a description of the regulatory options, baseline information on ground water systems, estimates of the monetized benefits and costs of the proposed rule, a description of additional unquantified and nonmonetized benefits, analysis of the economic impact of the rule, and a comparison of the overall benefits and costs of the rule alternatives.
