The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (Section 1401 and 1412, P.L. 99-339, as amended in 1986, has proposed a National Primary Drinking Water Regulation (NPDWR) pertaining to the contamination of public water systems by inorganic chemical contaminants. The proposed IOCs Rule includes information collection requirements for eight inorganic chemicals -- asbestos, barium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nitrate, nitrite, and selenium. The information collection request analyzes the information burden imposed on public water systems and States as a result of the regulation. EPA is proposing only to regulate source-related inorganics under this rule, as opposed to inorganics which predominately occur as corrosion by-products and naturally occurring copper and lead are analyzed in the RIA and ICR for lead and corrosion by-products. Note also that EPA has already promulgated a NPDWR for fluoride.
