The 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments require the EPA to determine at least every five years, whether to regulate at least five contaminants from the current Contaminant Candidate List (CCL) with a national primary drinking water regulation. The process of making decisions about whether to regulate any of the unregulated contaminants on the CCL is called Regulatory Determinations. On Oct. 8, 2009, the EPA published the third Contaminant Candidate List (CCL 3) containing 116 unregulated contaminants. The Agency currently is in the preliminary process of deciding whether to regulate at least five CCL 3 contaminants (i.e., Regulatory Determinations 3). The purpose of this notice is to announce that EPA will be hosting a public stakeholder meeting on June 16, 2011, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings time in the Washington D.C. area, to discuss and obtain input on EPA's process for Regulatory Determination 3 along with the contaminants and the technical information that the Agency is considering. The agency expects to publish the preliminary regulatory determinations for at least five CCL 3 contaminants in mid-2012 and final regulatory determinations by August 2013.
