Abstract The revised Radionuclides Rule came into effect on December 8, 2003. U.S. EPA's revisions to the Rule provide standards that, if met, ensure that all customers served by community water systems (CWSs) receive water that meets the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for radionuclides in drinking water. Regulated radionuclides include radium-226, radium-228, gross alpha particle activity, uranium, and beta particle and photon radioactivity. In accordance with the Rule, all CWSs must complete initial compliance monitoring by December 8, 2007. While most systems will be in compliance with the revised Rule, systems in areas of the country with elevated levels of naturally occurring radionuclides, and the few systems located near facilities that could potentially contaminate source waters with radioactive substances, might have to install new or upgrade existing treatment to meet these revised standards. These treatment processes will produce residuals containing regulated radionuclides.
