Propublica published an article about the process for establishing Drinking Water Standards at the federal level and among several states:
At its October meeting, the SWPAWN Drinking Water Standards Working Group identified the Pennsylvania process for establishing, monitoring and enforcing standards as a priority issue for additional learning and action. The notes from the October meeting are available.
Upcoming Working Group meetings will learn and share more information about the effectiveness and implementation of the Safe Drinking Act. If you are able to help us set the agenda and participate please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming meetings or learning sessions.
