|In 2011, EPA announced its decision (76 FR 7762- 7767) to regulate perchlorate under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) no later than February 2013. SDWA requires EPA to request comments from the SAB prior to proposal of a maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) and national primary drinking water regulation. EPA has therefore requested an SAB review of the scientific and technical bases for the approaches being considered in a draft white paper entitled “Life Stage Considerations and Interpretation of Recent Epidemiological Evidence to Develop a Maximum Contaminant Level Goal for Perchlorate.”|
