|Subject:||[CPEO-MEF] PERCHLORATE: Industry challenges EPA White Paper|
News Release July 2012STATEMENT FROM THE PERCHLORATE INFORMATION BUREAU (PIB) RE: Comments to U.S. EPA's Science Advisory Board Panel on Perchlorate
The Perchlorate Study Group (PSG) has urged the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Scientific Advisory Board panel on perchlorate to, among other things, consider the full body of perchlorate science rather than only an unrepresentative sample of studies published since 2005, as proposed by EPA.
EPA's recently published White Paper on perchlorate fails to provide the panel with the foundational science dating back five decades, including an authoritative report by the National Academy of Sciences.
Importantly, none of the post-2005 studies EPA presents demonstrate that perchlorate has any adverse effect on humans at any age - supporting EPA's original conclusion not to regulate perchlorate. Nor do any of these studies change the fundamental scientific understanding of perchlorate, including a recognized No Effect Level of 245 parts per billion in water. That said, it remains essential for the panel to consider this foundational research before 2005 in order to make judgments based on the best available science, as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act.
