"The potential for the accumulation and intermittent release of trace inorganic and radiological contaminants within water distribution systems has gained considerable attention in the drinking water community over the past several years. These phenomena have been shown to result in at-the-tap concentrations of certain inorganic and radiological contaminants that far exceed their entry-point levels and in some cases, their drinking water standards." -- p. xxi.
