The Drinking Water Subcommittee of the Science Advisory Board's Environmental Health Committee completed its review of the Drinking Water Health Criteria Document for Acrylamide. Subcommittee made the following conclusions and recommendations: because it was performed for two full years the Johnson Study should be used in setting the standard, the final assessment of the carcinogenic potential should await the results of the current bioassay, the ability of acrylamide to produce heritable germ cell mutations should be given emphasis in the risk assessment process, the health implications of products formed from acrylamide as a result of chlorination and oxidation processes are potentially serious and must be considered in the document, and the potential effects of pH and metal ions in water should be addressed.
