On October 9, 2014, in the Legal Ads section, the Alaska Dispatch News published a Public Notice for proposed regulations changes to Drinking Water regulations (18 AAC 80). This was published in error. The Drinking Water Program will provide a different Public Notice, including a different public comment period, for these proposed regulations changes at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have questions, please contact Gloria Collins at 907-269-3075 or gloria.collins@alaska.gov.
