Nomination Summary for Water disinfection by-products FY97 (N97002)
Nominated Substances: Bromochloroacetic acid, Bromodichloroacetic Acid, Bromodichloromethane, Dibromoacetonitrile, Dichloroacetic acid, Sodium bromate
Nomination Date: 01/23/1997
Rationale: The EPA is in the process of developing new drinking water regulations for water disinfection by-products (DBPs). The agency is prioritizing testing in the chronic bioassay for those DBPs of relatively high occurrence, and those that it believes may pose the greatest risk to human beings. The EPA plans to develop a chronic database on several DBP's, representing different chemical classes (e.g., trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, haloacetonitriles).
