This is the first meeting of the Drinking Water Research Working Group. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) anticipates 3-4 meetings of this working group over the course of the next year. The purpose of this working group will be to provide advice to NDWAC as it develops recommendations for EPA on a Comprehensive Drinking Water Research Strategy (as required under the Safe Drinking Water Act) that will consider a broad range of research needs to support the Agency's drinking water regulatory activities. The research strategy will include an assessment of research needs for microbes and disinfection by-products (M/DBPs), arsenic, contaminants on the Contaminant Candidate List (CCL), and other critical research issues. This first meeting will focus on the proposed approach for developing the Comprehensive Drinking Water Research Strategy. Specifically, the working group will discuss the outline of the strategy, the scientific framework upon which it is organized, and the list of topics to be included.
