Tell the EPA to Reduce Contamination of Tap Water
Did you know there are contaminants in your tap water that are not regulated??
The Contaminant Candidate List, or CCL, is a list of contaminants that are not currently subject to any drinking water regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has previously published four CCLs containing hundreds of different chemicals, microbials, and biological toxins. The process of building CCLs asks for public nomination of chemicals or other materials for consideration. Once received, the EPA will review and determine if the contaminants should be chosen for regulation.
The EPA requested public nominations for CCL 5 from October 4, 2018 through December 4, 2018. It has been over two years since submissions have closed and the EPA has not released information on their plans for these contaminants!
SIGN THE PETITION NOW and DEMAND the EPA finalize and publish CCL 5 to help reduce exposure to contaminants in U.S. tap water.
