Measures—EPA’s Office of Water (OW) produced a draft Measure Development Plan in October, 2004. The purpose of the plan is to develop longterm measures that describe changes over time of disease due to drinking water contamination or changes in the occurrence of indicators of waterborne disease. The objective of the measures is to demonstrate the effectiveness of drinking water programs on epidemic and endemic, acute and chronic disease related to microbes or other water contaminants. The SAB is being asked to comment on the effectiveness of this plan to produce outcome measures. CCL3—The 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act amendments (SDWA) require EPA to (1) publish every five years a list of currently unregulated contaminants in drinking water that may pose risks (the Contaminant Candidate List or ‘‘CCL’’), and (2) make determinations on whether or not to regulate at least five contaminants from that list on a staggered five year cycle. SDWA requires EPA to publish a new list of contaminants that are known or anticipated to occur in public water systems every five years. The first CCL (CCL1) was published or finalized on March 2, 1998 (63 FR 10273). CCL1 was developed based on the review by technical experts of readily available information and contained 50 chemicals and 10 microbial contaminants/groups. EPA consulted with the scientific community, including the Science Advisory Board, on a process for developing the first CCL. The second CCL (CCL2) was published on February 24, 2005 (70 FR 9071). CCL2 carried forward the remaining 51 chemical and microbial contaminants listed on CCL1. The Agency is evaluating data and research on these chemicals and microbes to make regulatory determinations on the contaminants listed CCL2. The draft CCL3 includes 93 chemicals or chemical groups and 11 microbiological contaminants. The EPA is seeking comment from the SAB DWC on the draft CCL3, the approach used to develop the list, and other specific contaminants. Availability of Meeting Materials: The meeting agendas and other materials including a link to the Office of Water’s draft Measures document will be posted on the SAB Web Site at: (http:// www.epa.gov/sab) in advance of the meeting.
