Public Meeting On Proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for Perchlorate

EPA will hold a public meeting and a webcast to share information with the public related to treatment technologies, analytical methods, and other information on the development of a proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for Perchlorate. Perchlorate is a naturally occurring and man-made chemical that is used to produce rocket fuel, fireworks, flares, and explosives. It is sometimes used to produce bleach and certain fertilizers. Scientific research suggests perchlorate can have adverse health effects, including disrupting the thyroid's ability to produce hormones needed for normal growth and development.

EPA says it anticipates publishing its proposed rule for regulating perchlorate for public review and comment in 2013.

The public meeting and webcast will take place on September 20, 2012, from 10 am to 4 pm (EST), in Arlington, Virginia. Anyone wishing to participate in the in-person meeting must register in advance no later than 5 pm EST on September 17, 2012. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for those persons registered. Webcast participants must register in advance; EPA says the number of connections available of the webcast is also limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
