      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 224.10-110(2) and (3) require the Secretary of the Cabinet to promulgate administrative regulations for the regulation and control of the purification of water for public and semipublic use.

This administrative regulation requires that the report and certification be delivered to the cabinet by July 1 of each year.
