About this book

With an increasing population, use of new and diverse chemicals that can enter the water supply, and emergence of new microbial pathogens, the U.S. federal government is faced with a regulatory dilemma: where should it focus its attention and limited resources to ensure safe drinking water supplies for the future? "Identifying Future Drinking Water Contaminants" is based on a 1998 workshop on emerging drinking water contaminants. It includes a dozen papers that were presented on new and emerging microbiological and chemical drinking water contaminants, associated analytical and water treatment methods for their detection and removal, and existing and proposed environmental databases to assist in their proactive identification and regulation. The papers are preceded by a conceptual approach and related recommendations to EPA for the periodic creation of future Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate Lists (CCLs - produced every five years - include currently unregulated chemical and microbiological substances that are known or anticipated to occur in public water systems and that may pose health risks).
