The Toxicology/Clinical Subcommittee of the Science Advisory Board's Drinking Water Committee reviewed issues related to the Office of Drinking Water's Health Criteria Document on Chlorinated Acids/Alcohols/Aldehydes/Ketones. These compounds are potential disinfection by-products and thus, are important to regulatory efforts. In our opinion, the material presented on the occurrence of these compounds in drinking water can be presented in a more detailed and informative fashion. We also questioned why trichloroethanol is of concern as a pollutant when it does not appear to have been found in drinking water. Furthermore, on the basis of information supplied by EPA scientists, we recommend an expansion of the discussion and evaluation of the developmental toxicity studies.
