Regulatory Determination 3
The contaminant may have an adverse effect on the health of persons;
The contaminant is known to occur or there is a substantial likelihood the contaminant will occur in public water systems with a frequency and at levels of public health concern; and
In the sole judgment of the Administrator, regulation of the contaminant presents a meaningful opportunity for health risk reductions for persons served by public water systems.
On January 4, 2016, EPA announced the final determinations not to regulate four of the 116 CCL 3 contaminants – dimethoate, 1,3-dinitrobenzene, terbufos, and terbufos sulfone. The agency delayed the final regulatory determination on strontium to consider additional data and decide whether there is a meaningful opportunity for health risk reduction by regulating strontium in drinking water.
