ASDWA Releases Two-Page Summary of SDWA Regulatory Development Process

For those that sometimes find the multiple acronyms such as CCL, UCMR, NPDWR, etc., a tad confusing when looking at the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) regulatory development process, ASDWA has released a two-pager on the SDWA regulatory development process as a resource for the broader drinking water community. Of course, other resources, such as EPA’s SDWA website, can provide more detailed information for those that want to dive into the details of each step of the process, but this summary provides a quick overview of the steps that EPA must go through in developing a new drinking water regulation, as well as reviewing all of the existing regulations.
