The interval is 90k miles. This seems to be pretty conservative and the waterpump is really the limiting factor in most cases.

I have changed 2 of these belts, on my vehicles, in both cases the waterpump had been seeping out of the weep hole (which is designed to direct seepage away from the timing belt.
I thought all these engines have been weeded out by now.
