The study involves the analysis of three major environmental laws -- the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Toxic Substances Control Act -- and the regulations and programs under these acts as they effect implementation of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The purposes of the study are: (1) to determine what needs exist for coordinating current programs to more effectively protect public water supplies; (2) to identify problems related to the protection of public water supplies that are not explicity covered by the legislation; and (3) to develop recommendations for a research agenda for the Environmental Protection Agency to address these problems. The methodology developed for the study was intended to identify how the Safe Drinking Water Act related to implementation of the other legislation, what mechanisms for coordination currently exist, what mechanisms are insufficient or lacking, and what drinking water related problems are inadequately addressed.
