Frequent Questions

Is the Agency going to consider other groups like they have for VOCs under the Drinking Water Strategy Contaminant Groups Effort?

Yes. In the near-term, EPA also will evaluate whether to regulate nitrosamine disinfection byproducts as part of the Contaminant Candidate List Regulatory Determination process. Data from the second Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule indicate that these compounds are frequently being found in public water systems. In the long-term, EPA will continue to work with our stakeholders to evaluate and fill the data gaps for other groups of interest for drinking water.
