The New Jersey Department of Health has proposed amendments to the Public Recreational Bathing Regulations (N.J.A.C. 8:26-1 et. seq.). These amendments, if promulgated, will affect the microbiological sampling and processing of public recreational bathing facilities. These proposed amendments are available to view on the web.
Here is a link to an EnviroPolitics Blog video with Lab Director Harvey Klein, M.S., discussing the proposed Public Recreational Bathing Regs and Drinking Water standards.
