The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1974 requires that EPA establish maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for contaminants which may have an adverse effect on the health of persons. Recent amendments have accelerated the regulatory schedule under the SDWA and increased the number of contaminants to be regulated as well. The Drinking Water Research Division (DWRD) has the responsibility to evaluate feasible technology for each proposed MCL. Because of the acceleration in establishing MCLs, DWRD has developed bench and pilot scale techniques which when combined with cost models can be used to predict the cost and performance of full scale unit processes.
