1. An imminent hazard exists if the Division, after consulting with the district board of health and the supplier of water, determines that a contaminant is or will be found in a public water system and the contaminant is a serious risk to public health.
2. To eliminate an imminent hazard, the Division may issue an emergency order requiring the supplier of water immediately to take action necessary to protect the public health. An emergency order may require that a supplier of water cease distributing the water.
3. Such an emergency order is effective immediately and is not subject to review unless the supplier to whom the order is issued, within 30 days after the date the order is served, petitions for a hearing before the Division.
4. Whenever conditions of a public water system are such as to require immediate action to protect the public health, the Division may issue public warnings in such manner as the Division determines to be suitable.
