The Health Advisory Program, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Water has issued its report on the metal antimony: included are the compounds potassium antimony tartrate, sodium antimony tartrate, and sodium antimony bis(pyrocatechol)-disulfate. It provides information on the health effects, analytical methodology, and treatment technology that would be useful in dealing with the contamination of drinking water. Health Advisories (HAs) describe nonregulatory concentrations of drinking water contaminants at which adverse health effects would not be anticipated to occur over specific exposure durations. HAs serve as informal technical guidance to assist Federal, State, and local officials responsible for protecting public health when emergency spills or contamination situations occur. They are not legally enforceable Federal Standards and are subject to change as new information becomes available.
