This is the third meeting of the Drinking Water Research Working Group. The purpose of this working group is 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 Contaminants Candidate List (CCL), and other critical cross-cutting issues, such as sensitive subpopulations, distribution systems, contaminants mixtures, future scenarios and source water assessment. The majority of this meeting (1.5 days) will be a workshop on futures scenarios. During the first half of November 28th, the working group will also discuss the status of the cross-cutting issues and criteria for prioritizing research.Start Further Info
