SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this public meeting is to

apply to aircraft public water systems.
2. Recent EPA aircraft drinking water sampling results.
3. The process that will be followed in developing an aircraft
drinking water rule.
4. Key issues that must be addressed in the development of a new
aircraft drinking water rule. These issues include:
a. Which contaminates are of concern for aircraft water systems
that take on water from domestic sources only, or from both domestic
and foreign sources?
b. What is the appropriate monitoring frequency for aircraft water
systems that take on water from domestic sources only, or both domestic
and foreign sources?
c. What is the appropriate frequency of disinfecting and flushing
aircraft water systems?
d. Should aircraft that obtain all of their water from another
public water system be classified as a ``consecutive'' public water
system that can obtain reduced monitoring requirements under EPA's
regulations (40 CFR 141.29)?
e. How should EPA address aircraft water from foreign sources?
f. What should be done to address the low disinfectant residual
levels in the drinking water found on a high percentage of aircraft?
