The report is comprised of a number of tables which list allowable thresholds for chemicals that are regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The Drinking Water Standards and Health Advisories tables are revised periodically by EPAs Office of Water on an as needed basis. The Summer 2002 edition of the tables has retained the content and format changes introduced in the Summer 2000 edition and has added the Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers (CASRN) for the chemical contaminants. The following changes should be kept in mind when using the Tables: Reference dose (RfD) values have been updated to reflect the values in the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), and the Drinking Water Equivalent Level (DWEL) has been calculated accordingly. For regulated chemicals, the cancer group designation and 10-4 cancer risk reflect the status at the time of regulation. Several pesticides listed in IRIS have been re-evaluated by the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) resulting in an RfD other than that in IRIS. For these pesticides, the IRIS value is listed in the Table, and the newer OPP value is given in a footnote. In some cases there is a Health Advisory value for a contaminant but there is no reference to a Health Advisory document. These Health Advisory values can be found in the Drinking Water Criteria Document for the contaminant. With a few exceptions, the Health Advisory values have been rounded to one significant figure.
