scientists have indicated results in health
effects." While commenting to the media
on EWG's report, Wilson said, "Utilities
are likely always going to be a step behind
the development of new chemicals.
Regulating the source of manmade
contamination is the key, but unless it's
deemed a contaminant, then it can't be
regulated. Therefore, new and emerging
contaminants leave us in a reactive state."
Mississippi Rural Water
Association (MRWA) executive
director reviews federal "mandatory
consolidation" law: In an in-person

interview in Duncan, OK, MRWA's Kirby
Mayfield explained that he is reviewing the
"mandatory consolidation" Safe Drinking
Water Act provision recently passed
by a U.S. House of Representatives
committee. The provision was added to
legislation (H.R. 3387) that was originally
sponsored by Mississippi Congressman
Gregg Harper, who asked for Mayfield's
analysis of the provision to ensure it will
not be detrimental to rural and small
communities. Mayfield indicated he plans
to have his review complete by the end of
the month. ●

Drinking Water System Improvement
Act, which passed the Energy and
Commerce Committee on July 27 and
should be taken up by the full U.S. House
of Representatives by the end of the
year. The committee deliberated on five
provisions in the legislation that could
be problematic for the membership. The
committee enlisted the assistance of
Mississippi, Illinois and New York Rural
Water Associations to begin discussions
with the bills' authors from those states
about modifications to the legislation.
North Carolina Rural Water
Association (NCRWA) on Capitol Hill
raising concerns with committeepassed bill to make significant changes
to the Safe Drinking Water Act: On July
27, the Energy and Commerce Committee
unanimously approved H.R. 3387, the
Drinking Water System Improvement
Act. In order to attract broad bipartisan
support, the bill's sponsors included
a number of new SDWA provisions
(mandatory consolidation, new monitoring
requirements, new security requirements,
etc.). NCRWA was on Capitol Hill making
presentations to its delegation and raising
small and rural community issues with
the legislation. NRWA's Regulatory
Committee will be reviewing these issues
and discussing the issue with the bill's
sponsors. Any changes in the legislation
will most likely have to be supported by
New York Representative Paul Tonko
(ranking member of the subcommittee),
Illinois Representative John Shimkus
(committee chairman) and Mississippi
Representative Gregg Harper (sponsor of
the bill).
North Carolina Rural Water
Association (NCRWA) executive
director stands up for his membership:
In an interview last week, NCRWA's
Daniel Wilson updated us on the situation
regarding drinking water from the Cape
Fear River. Wilson has been drawn into the
public and media discussion on the issue
while explaining that the responsibility for
the chemical, GenX, entering the drinking
water supply lies with the manufacturer
as opposed to the water utility. The
Environmental Working Group (EWG)
added to public confusion on the issue by
releasing a national Tap Water Database,
claiming that "federal drinking water
standards are set at levels above what
