CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations (Trailer Standards)

Whereas certain provisions of part 1037 of title 40 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations correspond to certain provisions of the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations footnote a;

And whereas certain provisions of those Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations footnote a are inconsistent with Title 40, chapter I, subchapter U, part 1037, of the Code of Federal Regulations because of the stay of the operation of the emission provisions for trailers — namely, the greenhouse gas emission standards for trailers, at 40 Code of Federal Regulations section 1037.107, and the other provisions in 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1037 that are contained in the Final Rule of United States’ Environmental Protection Agency, published in October 2016 in volume 81 of the Federal Register of the United States, at page 73,478, to the extent that they apply to trailers or trailer manufacturers — that was granted by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, on October 27, 2017, in the case of Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association Inc. v the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and al. (Case No. 16-1430, consolidated with No. 16-1447);

Therefore, the Minister of the Environment, pursuant to subsection 163(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 footnote b, makes the annexed Interim Order Modifying the Operation of the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations (Trailer Standards).

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the fee schedule.)

The Marine Navigation Services Fee (MNSF) was introduced in 1998 to recover a portion of the costs in delivering Canadian Coast Guard aids to navigation services and marine traffic services to the commercial marine industry.

This MNSF schedule replaces and revises the previous MNSF fee schedule. The principal changes to the MNSF schedule are the following:

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Proposed guideline for Canadian drinking water quality for Escherichia coli

Pursuant to subsection 55(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, the Minister of Health hereby gives notice of a proposed guideline for Canadian drinking water quality for Escherichia coli. The proposed guidance document is available from June 14, 2019, to August 2, 2019, on the Water Quality website. Any person may, within 60 days after publication of this notice, file with the Minister of Health written comments on the proposed document. Comments must be sent to the Secretariat of the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water, either by email at HC.water-eau.SC@canada.ca, or by regular mail to the Water and Air Quality Bureau, Health Canada, 269 Laurier Avenue West, A.L. 4903D, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9.

ANNEX

Proposed guideline

A maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of none detectable per 100 mL is proposed for Escherichia coli in drinking water.

Executive summary

This guideline technical document was prepared in collaboration with the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water and assesses all available information on Escherichia coli.

Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a species of bacteria that is naturally found in the intestines of humans and warm-blooded animals. It is present in feces in high numbers and can be easily and affordably measured in water, which makes it a useful indicator of fecal contamination for drinking water providers. E. coli is the most widely used indicator for detecting fecal contamination in drinking water supplies worldwide. In drinking water monitoring programs, E. coli testing is used to provide information on the quality of the source water, the adequacy of treatment and the safety of the drinking water distributed to the consumer.

Significance of E. coli in drinking water systems and their sources

E. coli monitoring should be used, in conjunction with other indicators, as part of a multi-barrier approach to producing drinking water of an acceptable quality. Drinking water sources are commonly impacted by fecal contamination from either human or animal sources and, as a result, usually contain E. coli. Its presence in a water sample is considered a good indicator of recent fecal contamination. The ability to detect fecal contamination in drinking water is a necessity, as pathogenic microorganisms from human and animal feces in drinking water pose the greatest danger to public health.

Under a risk management approach to drinking water systems such as a multi-barrier or water safety plan approach, monitoring for E. coli is used as part of the water quality verification process to show that the natural and treatment barriers in place are providing the necessary level of control needed. The detection of E. coli in drinking water indicates fecal contamination and that fecal pathogens may be present, which can pose a health risk to consumers. In a groundwater source, the presence of E. coli indicates that the groundwater has been affected by fecal contamination, while in treated drinking water the presence of E. coli can signal that treatment is inadequate or that the treated water has become contaminated during distribution. If testing confirms the presence of E. coli in drinking water, actions that can be taken include notifying the responsible authorities, using a boil water advisory and implementing corrective actions.

Using multiple parameters in drinking water verification monitoring as indicators of general microbiological water quality (such as total coliforms, heterotrophic plate counts) or additional indicators of fecal contamination (enterococci) is a good way for water utilities to enhance the potential to identify issues and thus trigger responses.

Treatment

In drinking water systems that are properly designed and operated, water that is treated to meet the guidelines for enteric viruses (minimum 4 log removal of viruses) or enteric protozoa (minimum 3 log removal of protozoa) will be capable of achieving the proposed MAC of none detectable per 100 mL for E. coli. Detecting E. coli in drinking water indicates that there is a potential health risk from consuming the water; however, E. coli testing on its own is not able to confirm the presence or absence of drinking water pathogens.

For municipal-scale systems, it is important to apply a monitoring approach that includes the use of multiple operational and water quality verification parameters (e.g. turbidity, disinfection measurements, E. coli), in order to verify that the water has been adequately treated and is therefore of an acceptable microbiological quality. For residential-scale systems, regular E. coli testing combined with monitoring of critical processes, regular physical inspections and a source water assessment can be used to confirm the quality of the drinking water supply.

International considerations

Drinking water guidelines, standards and/or guidance from other national and international organizations may vary due to the age of the assessments as well as differing policies and approaches.

The proposed MAC for E. coli is consistent with drinking water guidelines established by other countries and international organizations. The World Health Organization, the European Union, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Australia National Health and Medical Research Council have all established a limit of zero E. coli per 100 mL.
