The Halogenated Organics Subcommittee of the EPA Science Advisory Board's Environmental Health Committee conducted an independent scientific review of the Office of Drinking Water's Draft Criteria Document for 1,2 Dichloropropane. The Subcommittee unanimously concluded that the drinking water equivalent level should not be based on the non-carcinogenic endpoints of the National Toxicology Program's 1986 bioassay in male rats. It offered five reasons for this conclusion: (1) the dose of 62 mg/kg bw/day represents a no-observed-effect-level for cancer in male rats; (2) the endpoints of survival, body weight organs and tissues are not sufficiently sensitive; (3) histological lesions were observed in the testes of some male rats given the 62 mg dose; (4) evidence indicated that the chemical may be a male reproductive toxic; and (5) the NTP bioassay was not designed to supply data for derivation of a drinking water equivalent level.
