This report to Congress addresses EPA's national-level affordability criteria and small systems implementation issues related to achieving compliance with the Arsenic in Drinking Water Rule. As part of the 2002 appropriations process, Congress directed EPA to 'begin immediately to review the Agency's affordability criteria and how small system variance and exemption programs should be implemented for arsenic' as well as to 'recommend procedures to grant an extension of time in meeting the compliance requirement for small communities when a community can showthat compliance by 2006 poses an undue economic hardship on that community.' Congress further directed the Agency to prepare a report 'by March 1, 2002 on its review of the affordability criteria and the administrative actions undertaken or planned to be undertaken by the Agency, as well as potential funding mechanisms for small community compliance and other legislative actions, which, if taken by the Congress, would best achieve appropriate extensions of time for small communities while also guaranteeing maximum compliance.'
