ACTION: Notice of public meeting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Under section 10(a)(2) of Public Law 92-423, ``The Federal
Advisory Committee Act,'' notice is hereby given of the forthcoming
meeting of the Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate List (CCL)
Classification Process Work Group of the National Drinking Water
Advisory Council (NDWAC), established under the Safe Drinking Water
Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 300f et seq.).

DATES: The next two meetings of the NDWAC CCL Work Group will be held
on the following dates: December 16-17, 2002 (9 a.m.-5 p.m. EDT on

Washington, DC. The February meeting of the CCL Work Group will be held
at RESOLVE Inc., 1255 23rd Street, NW., Suite 275, Washington, DC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CCL serves as the primary source of
priority contaminants for research and regulatory evaluations for the
Agency's drinking water program. The list is comprised of both chemical
and microbial contaminants that are known or anticipated to occur in
public water systems, and may have adverse health effects, and which at
the time of publication are not subject to any proposed or promulgated
National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. EPA has formed a CCL
Classification Process Work Group of the National Drinking Water
Advisory Council (NDWAC) to help the Agency in developing a new risk
based priority setting process based upon the recommendations made by
the National Research Council (NRC) in its 2001 report.
    The work group is comprised of 21 recognized technical experts
representing an array of backgrounds and perspectives who are as
impartial and objective as possible. The work group is charged with
discussing, evaluating, and providing advice on methodologies,
activities, and analysis needed to implement the NRC recommendations on
an expanded approach for the CCL listing process. This may include
advice on developing and identifying: (1) Overall implementation
strategy, (2) prototype classification methodology, classification
attributes and criteria that should to be used, (3) pilot projects to
validate new classification approaches, (4) demonstration studies that
explore the feasibility of the VFAR (Virulance-Factor Activity
Relationships) approach, (5) risk communication issues, and (6)
additional issues not addressed in the NRC report.
    The first meeting of the work group was held on September 18-19,
2002. The meeting objectives were to: gain understanding of the NRC
recommendations from the invited members of the NRC panel; identify
questions, issues and technical expertise needed to fulfill its charge;
and plan next steps. At the conclusion of the first meeting, the work
group identified four activity areas for small group discussions and
formed committees to address each area (4-6 members/committee). The
four committees are: committee on characterization of the universe of
contaminants, committee on classification systems, committee on VFAR,
and committee on developing guiding principles for the work group. Each
committee is expected to hold several conference calls for group
discussions in between the plenary meetings. EPA will provide technical
materials and RESOLVE will arrange a conference call for each
committee.
    The meetings are open to the public for observation purposes only.
Statements from the public will be taken at the close of each meeting.
EPA is not soliciting written comments and is not planning to formally
respond to comments.

    Dated: November 20, 2002.
Nanci Gelb,
Acting Director, Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water.
