EPA Requests Nomination for Fifth Contaminant Candidate List

Today (10/5), EPA published a Federal Register notice requesting nominations for the Fifth Contaminant Candidate List (CCL5). Nominations are a routine component of each five-year CCL cycle within the Safe Drinking Water Act’s (SDWA’s) regulatory development process for new drinking water regulations. Based on the mandated five-year cycles and the final CCL4 being published in November 2016, the statutory deadline for the final CCL5 is November 2021. If you want to submit specific contaminants as CCL5 nominations, submit your comments to EPA by December 4th to Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2018-0594.
