Title: Regulatory impact analysis: Benefits and costs of proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulations for inorganic chemicals. Phase 2, March 1989

National Primary Drinking Water Regulations are proposed for 30 synthetic organic chemicals, termed the SOCs. The document presents an analysis of the projected national costs and benefits associated with the proposed regulations in compliance with Executive Order 12291. It also includes an analysis of cost impacts on small water systems in compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The 30 SOCs fall into three groups. For a group of three 'miscellaneous' contaminants (acrylamide, epichlorohydrin, and PCBs), it is simply not possible to estimate occurrence due to a lack of data. Total national costs and benefits for all three are not anticipated to be very significant.
