This article examines the extent to which the federal drinking water program is meeting its public health protection goals and reviews the costs regulations imposed on society at a time when the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is under review for reauthorization by Congress.
Under the 1986 amendments, USEPA has promulgated seven significant rule-making packages covering more than 70 contaminants.
The regulatory record reveals a high degree of variability in costs and risk reductions associated with these rules.
