Abstract
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing national regulations to control for disinfectants and disinfection by-products (D/DBPs) in public drinking water supplies. EPA intends to propose regulations that will apply to all public water systems using disinfection and serving non-transient populations -- approximately 220 million people. This regulation would be unlike the current maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) which only pertains to systems serving more than 10,000 people. A fundamental goal in setting any new regulation is to be able to conclude with confidence that the resultant changes in treatment would lead to a significant overall decrease in risk to public health. This paper will describe the analysis that EPA is undertaking in pursuit of meeting this goal.
