EPA Releases Final Regulatory Determinations for Contaminants on Third Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate List

(EPA Water News)

EPA reduces human health risks by studying the presence of selected unregulated contaminants in drinking water every five years. EPA then determines whether to regulate the unregulated contaminants.

On October 20, 2014, the agency released preliminary determinations to regulate strontium and not to regulate dimethoate, 1,3-dinitrobenzene, terbufos and terbufos sulfone. EPA has made a final regulatory determination not to issue a national primary drinking water regulation for dimethoate, 1,3-dinitrobenzene, terbufos and terbufos sulfone because they are not occurring, or occur infrequently in drinking water.  However, the agency is not making a final regulatory determination for strontium at this time. The agency based its decision to delay a final determination for strontium on public comments received and plans to further evaluate scientific information that became available after publication of the preliminary regulatory determinations. By delaying action, the agency can use the best available science to conduct additional scientific analyses to determine if there is a need to develop a national drinking water regulation for strontium.  | Full Article
