The Science Advisory Board's Drinking Water Committee met in Washington, DC on October 25-26, 1990 to review the Office of Drinking Water's document Revised External Draft for the Drinking Water Criteria Document for Trihalomethanes (THM), addressing issues concerning the toxicity of THMs. The 1979 THM regulations were based primarily on tumor formation in mouse liver and rat kidney following chronic exposure to chloroform. Health data were not available on brominated THMs at that time. Some new information has been generated and the revised document addresses the issues related to the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) for THMs.
