Ongoing Hexavalent Chromium Related Services
Provost & Pritchard is providing consulting services related to water quality concerns for a municipal water system, specifically with hexavalent chromium (Chrome 6). The agency has been impacted by a new state regulation because the level of Chrome 6 in all of the agency’s wells exceeds 10 ppb, the state’s maximum contaminant limit (MCL). Within a month of the regulation being proposed, Provost & Pritchard was retained to evaluate the problem and find a solution. The project includes continued engineering support related to assessing the impacts of the impending hexavalent chromium regulation on the agency’s water supply; evaluation of the existing water supply system; and serving as a liaison between the agency and regulatory agencies, water contractors, equipment suppliers, government representatives, and other interested parties.
