Vol. 1, no. 1 -- Nov. 10, 2000

Welcome to the first issue of safedrinkingwater.com NEWS, the premier newsletter for the drinking water quality community.  Our intent is to make this newsletter the best and first source of news and information for drinking water quality professionals, with a combination of timely articles and incisive commentary from the leading observers in the industry.
     The focus of this electronic newsletter is strictly drinking water quality.  We will bring you information on the latest EPA and state regulations, and on legislation at the federal, state, and local levels.  Our emphasis in the beginning will be on California drinking water issues; in many cases, regulations in the most populous state are a harbinger of things to come nationwide. As our subscriber base grows, we will expand our coverage to the Western United States, and eventually to the entire U.S.  Safedrinkingwater.com NEWS will present general news stories of interest to the drinking water quality community -- everything from groundwater contamination to drinking water treatment innovations and violations.
    Please join us by subscribing.  The newsletter is free, and you will join a growing community of drinking water professionals.  Click on the link above to send us your name and e-mail address to subscribe.
