EPA is publishing 15 updated national recommended water quality criteria for the protection of human health: chlorobenzene; cyanide1; 2-dichlorobenzene;1,4-dichlorobenzene; 1,1-dichloroethylene; 1,3-dichloropropene; endrin; ethylbenzene; hexachlorocyclopentadiene; lindane; thallium; toluene; 1,2-transdichloroethylene; 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene and vinyl chloride.

These updated criteria are based on EPA's new methodology for deriving human health water quality criteria (i.e., the 2000 Human Health Methodology) and supercede criteria for these chemicals that the Agency had published earlier.
