This week's NEWS

Nitrosamines get new attention in California as ion-exchange resins go under the scope. Small Michigan system shows the way for arsenic compliance and good websites. Utah city doesn't like unique designation: Only system to exceed antimony MCL? Folks in Rhode Island city breathe sigh of relief: They are finally able to turn off the boilers and drink from the tap. When it comes to uranium, California prefers its 20 over EPA's 30... different numbers, different units. Filibuster may be in the DC winds for Energy Bill... targeting immunity from lawsuits for makers/users of MTBE. It's about 20/20 when blind tests compare tap water to bottled.

Federal Updates

State Updates

Nitrosamines (NDMA, NDEA, NDPA, etc.)

  • California drinking water regulators publish low notification levels for several more nitrosamines
    Commentary: CDHS has been out front on NDMA for some time and is moving toward an MCL for that particular nitrosamine.  The state risk assessors (OEHHA) are now working on a Public Health Goal for NDMA which is the necessary precursor for a MCL.  The state recently has added the same 10 ppt "notification level" to their website for two more nitrosamines: NDEA and NDPA.  Ion-exchange resins are connected to the recent findings.  (Notification level is Californese for what used to be action levels, but has a distinctly different legal meaning.)
