Statement from the Perchlorate Information Bureau (PIB): California's
Proposed Revision to Perchlorate Public Health Goal is Unnecessary
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The best available science overwhelmingly points to the conclusion that California's current perchlorate public health goal (PHG) of 6 parts per billion in drinking water is exceptionally conservative and highly protective of public health. California's proposed decision to lower the PHG to 1 part per billion would jeopardize water supplies and increase costs for water consumers statewide without any corresponding public health benefit.
Early Friday, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) released its draft public health goal (PHG) of 1 part per billion (ppb) for perchlorate in drinking water. A 45-day public comment period begins today. Comments on the proposal will follow a comprehensive review of the draft.
Regrettably, the best available and most credible science was not incorporated into the proposal.
