EPA Holds First Virtual Meeting of the Science Advisory Board to Discuss CCL 5

On January 11, EPA held the first of a series of three virtual meetings of the Science Advisory Board’s (SAB) Drinking Water Committee (DWC) to discuss the draft Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate List 5 (CCL 5) and three associated support documents. This first meeting consisted of a briefing from EPA staff on the CCL process and the Agency’s work to develop CCL 5, a discussion of the charge questions, and public comments. The remaining two meetings, to be held on February 16 and 18, will focus on the DWC’s review of the CCL 5 supporting documents. The agenda and materials for all three meetings can be found on the Agency’s SAB page.
