This week's NEWS

AWWA plans TCR webcast. Studies on DBP health effects yield important findings. E. coliform outbreak (with one fatality) may be linked to Oklahoma restaurant and maybe to well water. Elevated perchlorate tests in two Massachusetts systems lead to public notification and... head scratching. Cryptosporidium findings cause big boil water advisory in Wales. A tale of two cities? No, a tale of two different TTHM notices from one Texas city. Much ado about something... and that something is TCE.

Disinfection Byproducts

  • Two important prospective-pregnancy outcome studies involving 2000+ subjects over four-year period yield significant results: Commentary: The abstracted conclusions of the two studies are:
    1. The probability of preterm birth was not increased with high DBP exposure.
    And, for the second:
    2. Our results do not suggest an adverse effect of haloacetic acid or total organic halide exposure on fetal growth. An association of TTHM with SGA was seen only for average residential concentrations above the current regulatory standard.
  • Texas city issues public notice on THM levels (Waxahachie Daily Light, August 31)
    Commentary: The city did issue the mandatory public notice (PDF file, 13 K) for the first-quarter 2008 violation, but the latest (and almost simultaneous) Water Quality Update (PDF file, 19 K) on the City of Lancaster's website creates confusion because it covers the second-quarter TTHM results that brought the city into compliance.

Lead

  • Lead found in testing of schools in Ohio (WBNS, August 29) and in Michigan (Detroit Free Press, August 29)
