ABSTRACT

The EPA Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW) will provide an update on recent drinking water method development activities and collaborative efforts to validate these analytical procedures with participating laboratories. Discussion will include updates on the implementation of the fourth cycle of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation (UCMR 4) and future opportunities preparing for UCMR 5. The Alternative Testing Procedure (ATP) program will be reviewed along with the latest Expedited Method Approval action covering recently approved analytical methods for drinking water.
