Hexavalent chromium study continues in Glendale, CA. New study indicates low impacts of DBPs on one pregnancy outcome. California has its City of Ten Thousand Buddhas; Florida has its City of Ten Thousand Wells!

Federal Updates

  • USEPA's long-time-in-coming Ground Water Rule has arrived, most guidance to follow
    Commentary: If anyone has been holding their breath since this rule was originally proposed (2000), they can now exhale and relax. Many had questioned the wisdom (and democracy!) of EPA taking a rule to final after a long festering proposal which has undergone a lot of re-thinking in the intervening years. However, since the rule is not draconian, there will probably not be howls of protest. It is noteworthy that in addressing the microbiological quality of groundwater sources, EPA has moved into the arena of regulating the distribution system in ways that are not done for surface water sources. Does that make sense? Why are cross-connections, integrity of storage facilities, and sanitary surveys important only to ground water systems?
  • USEPA is requesting candidates (contaminants, that is) for the next CCL by December 15 (Federal Register, October 16)
