September 18, 2002 -- Volume 3, No. 38 NEWS -- the premier newsletter for the drinking water quality industry.

This week's NEWS

Voting on drinking water fluoridation is a popular topic. Solder containing lead is still out there! Placing the blame for perchlorate is not always as simple as pointing at your nearest DOD installation. Who do you tell and when do you tell them: Should WQ data be confirmed before public notification? Massachusetts arsenic MCL will not be confusing. Discharging treated wastewater to a receiving water? reuse for potable purposes? Is it in the eye of the beholder?
