  2. Encouragement of metering of reclaimed water in accordance with recent statutory directives in Sections 403.064(16), and 373.1961(4)(a), F.S., and Rule 62-40.416(3), F.A.C.

The rule revisions that went into effect on March 3, 2006, included the following:

  1. Creation of Rule 62-610.320(6)(g), F.A.C., to enable use of “other” meters (like the so-called “TSS meters”) in lieu of turbidity meters in monitoring reclaimed water. Utilities wanting to employ the so-called “TSS meters” in lieu of turbidity meters no longer will need to pursue a variance.

This included the addition of requirements for reporting of plans and activities related to metering of reclaimed water use, per statutory requirements, which were added to Section 403.064, F.S., in 2004.
  4. Refinements to the Pathogen Monitoring Form [adopted by reference in Rule 62-610.300(4)(a)4, F.A.C.]. Requirements for use of certified labs and approved methods and for re-testing if high pathogen concentrations are observed were added to this form.

  1. Refinements to rules governing ground water recharge and indirect potable reuse.
