Under Section 10(a)(2) of Public Law 92-423, The Federal Advisory Committee Act, notice is hereby given for a meeting of a subgroup of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC or Council). This Council was authorized by the Safe Drinking Water Act in 1974 (42 U.S.C. 300f et seq.) to support the Environmental Protection Agency in performing its responsibilities related to the national drinking water program. In June 2005, the Council established a subgroup to develop recommendations for EPA to move drinking water program measures from outputs to outcomes in three steps. Step 1 will be to recommend changes to the current performance measures that move them toward outcomes. Step 2 will be to recommend new performance measures that can capture some public health outcomes and be included in EPA's next strategic plan. Step 3 will be to identify future performance measures that need additional development. The subgroup will report to the NDWAC by mid-September 2005.


The face-to-face meeting of the subgroup will be held on Thursday, July 21, 2005, from 8:30 to 5 p.m., and Friday, July 22, 2005, 8:30 a.m. to noon, eastern daylight time.


The meeting will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Washington (formerly the Washington Terrace Hotel), 1515 Rhode Island Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20005. In addition to this meeting, conference calls have been scheduled for August 11, August 30, and September 14, 2005; however, specific times for these calls have not yet been determined.
