Summary

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water (OW) initiated the Health Advisory Program in 1978 to provide information and guidance to individuals or agencies concerned with potential risk from drinking water contaminants for which no national regulations currently exist. Since that time, more than 130 Health Advisories (HAs) have been published in final form for inorganic, organic, and microbial contaminants.

The HAs in this volume were developed in a cooperative effort with the Office of Research and Development. They summarize available data concerning the occurrence, pharmacokinetics, and health effects of 12 specific contaminants or mixtures. Each HA also discusses available analytical methods and treatment techniques for the contaminant. Each HA has undergone critical internal review by the OW Toxicology Review Panel and EPA program offices.

Health Advisories for Drinking Water Contaminants will be an important reference document for all public health officials, drinking water professionals, and academic libraries.
