  1. A survey and analysis of states' methodologies for deriving drinking water guideliness for chemical contaminants.

    Article - En anglais

    Data from a national survey questionnaire regarding the development of guidelines for chemical contaminants in drinking water were collected from all 50 states.

    Twenty-three states develop at least some of their own guidelines; the other 27 states rely on guidelines previously developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) or by other states.

    Improved communication and coordination between states and the federal government may help reduce the variations and inconsistencies among the states in establishing drinking water guidelines for chemical contaminants.
