Description:

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) instituted a formal regulation negotiation process in 1992 to develop the Disinfectant/Disinfection By-Product (D/DBP) Rule.1 The Advisory Committee that was established to negotiate the regulation included representatives from the water industry, State health agencies, environmental groups, consumer groups, and the U.S. EPA. During negotiations, the Advisory Committee realized that setting strict limits on the levels of disinfectants and disinfection by-products (D/DBPs) in drinking water could result in increasing risk of waterborne disease from pathogens. To balance the risks from pathogens and chemicals, the Advisory Committee made several recommendations and the final result was the development of three new drinking water regulations.
