SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The purpose of the public meeting is to obtain input from meeting participants about EPA's regulatory determination process before the Agency makes and publishes its preliminary regulatory determinations, as required under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). SDWA directs the Agency to select five or more contaminants from the CCL and determine whether or not to regulate these contaminants with a National Primary Drinking Water Regulation (NPDWR). EPA published the first CCL containing 60 contaminants in 1998 and made final regulatory determinations for 9 contaminants on the CCL in 2003. On April 2, 2004, EPA announced its preliminary decision to carry over the remaining 51 contaminants on the 1998 CCL as the draft CCL 2. EPA must make regulatory determinations for at least five contaminants on the second CCL by August 2006.

The Agency also plans to provide updates on the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring project and the Agency's initial efforts in developing the third Contaminant Candidate List (CCL 3).

Those registered by September 3rd will receive background materials prior to the meeting. Please note that attendees will be required to pass Start Printed Page 45316through security checks at the front desk and obtain a visitor's badge.
