The topic of the publication is how one identifies, assesses, and manages the occurrence of potentially toxic chemicals in drinking water. Obviously one cannot become an expert in toxicology, chemistry, and drinking water treatment by attending a workshop or reading the publication. The purpose of the document is to present a broad range of relevant information from the fields of toxicology, chemistry, and engineering, thus assisting the reader in assessing and managing drinking water contamination problems. Technical information is presented on U.S. EPA programs, toxicology, chemistry, treatment principles, and media coverage and risk communication during an emergency.
