Health Risk Limits Rules for Groundwater
2016/2018 Amendments -
Overview and Links


Health-based guidance for water is a concentration of a chemical (or a mixture of chemicals) in drinking water that is likely to pose little or no health risk to humans. Health Risk Limits (HRLs), a type of health-based guidance, are adopted through a formal rulemaking process authorized in statute.

MDH conducts rulemaking for HRLs on a two-year cycle in order to allow new or updated water guidance to be considered for adoption into rule. The 2016/2018 rule amendment process began in the spring of 2016.

Information about the proposed amendments and rulemaking process is provided through the links below.
