The Drinking Water Subcommittee of the Science Advisory Board's Environmental Health Committee completed its review of the Drinking Water Health Criteria Document for Ethylbenzene dated March 1987. The review was conducted February 4-5, 1988, at the Washington, Circle Hotel in Washington, D.C. The Subcommittee made the following conclusions and recommendations: the use of study by Wolf et al is acceptable in calculating the drinking water equivalent level, since the proposed drinking water equivalent level is greater than the odor and taste threshold a secondary should be set for ethylbenzene, further research is needed regarding interaction with other toxic such as acrylonitrile and xylene, classifying ethylbenzene as group D on weight of evidence it sound and exposure section is incomplete and misleading.
