This week's NEWS

How big is the tab for repair and replacement of drinking water systems in hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast states? Fluoridation chemical shortage impacts ripple across the country. Another step down the pathway toward monitoring for potential endocrine-disrupting chemicals. New Hampshire Supreme Court will rule on cities' right to sue MTBE producers. Weird Water Warning says water at school should be boiled... and there isn't even a Home Ec class! Lesson learned: Turn off the WTP aerators if you're going to paint around the air intakes!

Special notice to our subscribers: You may have noticed that this week's edition of SafeDrinkingwater.com NEWS landed in your email box a little later than usual. This change to Wednesday a.m. delivery will be permanent to help our production staff get to bed before midnight on Tuesday nights. Now, they might even be able to catch an episode of the new TV serial: "Commander-In-Chief" (no, it is not about the current White House occupant nor is it a run-up to the 2008 election). We hope this change does not inconvenience you! But, if it does, please let us know!

Federal Updates

  • USEPA describes its approach for selecting the first group of chemicals under its Endocrine Disrupter Screening Program (Federal Register, September 27)
    Commentary: This notice marks another step along the complex highway toward better knowledge about potential endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the environment. EPA will select 50-100 chemicals, mostly pesticide active ingredients and HPV (High Production Value) chemicals, to enable EPA to focus on "a smaller and more manageable universe of chemicals that emphasizes the early attention to the pesticide chemicals that Congress specifically mandated EPA to test for possible endocrine effects."
