Monday, August 7, 2017, Sen. Hassan (NH) visited and toured Horizon Technology, a ACIL member company, who is directly impacted by EPA's rule on this an important issue.

Over the last three months ACIL has been diligently working with members of Congress and their staff  that represent their membership in obtaining a meeting with EPA Secretary Pruitt regarding the Clean Water Act Analytical Methods “Method Update Rule (MUR) - 2016 - Guideline's Establishing Test Procedures for the Analysis of Pollutants" (40 CFR 136), which was signed by the former EPA Administrator McCarthy on December 16, 2016, but the rule was never published in the Federal Register for enactment.  The ACIL, an association representing independent commercial scientific and engineering firms with over 1,000 facilities across the U.S. engaged in testing, product certification, consulting, and research and development to enhance public health and safety, fully supports the immediate publication of the 2016 MUR by the EPA.

The method updates included in the 2016 MUR were designed to improve flexibility, update older methods, and allow laboratories to utilize newer technology when conducting compliance monitoring water testing.
