The 1986 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) require EPA to develop regulations for 83 specific contaminants as well as regulations specifying filtration and disinfection treatment requirements. All of the regulations will be promulgated by the early 1990's. Under Executive order 12291, EPA is required to perform a Regulatory Impact Analysis of all proposed regulations. The results of the individual analyses of each major rule package have been summed to provide a perspective on the cumulative cost impacts of the entire SDWA program. In addition, projections of where actual cost impacts will be incurred have been developed for each rule package, permitting an aggregate projection of SDWA compliance expenditures through the year 2010. The EPA intends to update the analysis on an annual basis to incorporate revised impact results for regulations that had not been promulgated at the time the interim final report was completed.
