Bill would require national MCL for perchlorate Water Technology Online July 29, 2009WASHINGTON - A California member of Congress on July 14 introduced a bill that would amend the Safe Drinking Water Act to require the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set a national primary drinking water regulation for the rocket-fuel chemical perchlorate, according to information on Politics4All.com.
The bill, the Safe Drinking Water for Healthy Communities Act of 2009 (H.R. 3206), was introduced by Rep. Jackie Speier, D-CA, and has 27 co-sponsors. It has been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
According to the bill, EPA information "likely underestimates the total drinking water exposure" of perchlorate, and requires EPA to propose a national drinking water regulation for perchlorate within one year. A final maximum contaminant level (MCL) rule would be expected to follow no later than 18 months after the regulation was proposed.
