The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), as amended in 1996, requires that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) review existing National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWRs) no less often than every six years and, if appropriate, revise them. This document describes the systematic approach that EPA used to review 68 chemical NPDWRs and the Total Coliform Rule (TCR) which were promulgated prior to the 1996 Amendments. The statutory deadline for completing this review was August 2002. EPA developed this document based on recommendations of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC), through internal Agency deliberations, and discussions with the diverse stakeholders involved in drinking water and its protection.
