SACRAMENTO - The California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) today published the nationâs first public health goal (PHG) for hexavalent chromium in drinking water.
The final PHG for hexavalent chromium, also known as chromium 6, is set at 0.02 parts per billion (ppb), which is the same level as the draft that was released for public comment in December 2010.
"This final public health goal is the culmination of years of study and research on the health effects of this chemical," said Dr. George Alexeeff, OEHHA's Acting Director. "As the nation's first official goal for this contaminant, it will be an important tool that the Department of Public Health will use to develop a regulatory standard that will protect Californians from the health risks of chromium 6 in drinking water."
