Safe Drinking Water Act: EPA Should Improve Implementation of Requirements on Whether to Regulate Additional Contaminants

by David C. Trimble
Paperback, 146 pages, 2011, $45.00
ISBN: 9781437988680

Under 1996 amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), every 5 years the EPA is to determine for at least five contaminants, such as chemicals, whether regulation is warranted, considering those that present the greatest public health concern.

Since 1996, EPA had not recommended any new contaminants for regulation until Feb. 2011, when it reversed its controversial 2008 preliminary decision to not regulate perchlorate, an ingredient in rocket fuel and other products. This report: (1) evaluates the extent to which EPA’s implementation of the 1996 amendments has helped assure the public of safe drinking water; and (2) reviews the process and scientific analyses used to develop the 2008 regulatory determination on perchlorate. Illus. A print on demand report.
