Contents Notes Water contaminants: monitoring, treatment and health impact -- Retrospective on drinking water -- Chemicals in California drinking water: source of contamination, risk assessment and drinking water standards -- Reactions of drinking water contaminants with aqueous chlorine and monochloramine -- Chemical monitoring of California's public drinking water sources: public exposures and health impacts -- Exposure assessment of water contaminants: specific dosimetry on radon and chloroform -- Benefits of deriving drinking water standards based on comprehensive assessments of exposure -- Chloroform exposure and the body burden associated with swimming in chlorinated pools -- Percutaneous absorption of chemicals from water simulating swimming and bathing and from vapor exposure. (cont) Comparison of two pathways to human for radon from drinking water: inhalation and ingestion -- Unified approach to dose and risk estimation for all routes of exposure to radon in water -- Methodology development in exposure assessment and dose estimates -- Use of pharmacokinetic models to estimate internal doses from exposure -- Pharmacokinetic interactions of drinking water contaminants -- Need for physiologically based toxicokinetic models in estimating target organ dosage following oral ingestion of cadmium -- Estimating dermal and inhalation exposure to volatile chemicals in domestic water -- Percutaneous absorption of dilute aqueous chlorinated organic solvents in the hairless guinea pig -- Predictive model for dermal exposure assessment. (cont) Establishing concepts and developing methodologies in dealing with various routes to exposure to water contaminants: dose versus health risk -- Human health risk assessment and water contaminants -- Estimating human health risks for trichloroethylene, a water contaminant, using physiological models -- Risk assessment based on data from the toxic chemical release inventory -- Empirical comparisons of carcinogen potencies across species and their bearing on appropriate scaling of doses for risk assessment -- Modeling risks from water contaminants: the application of concentration-response models -- Problematic risk assessments for drinking water contaminants: selenium, aldicarb and nickel -- Epidemiological evaluation of water contaminants and toxicological end points -- Are there carcinogens in water for human consumption? An epidemiologist's viewpoint.
