The EPA may want to include the use of dedicated water sampling devices as part of an overall water quality monitoring plan where the devices could function as a nonspecific early warning system. , medaka, flat head minnows, or trout) whose behavior and physical state could quickly reflect the presence of a toxic material in the water. Maintaining such a system is complicated and costly, requiring fixed facilities with technical staff and active management. In addition, decision logic would need to be developed to determine the interpretation and follow-up that would be needed in the event that a physiological reaction was noted in the fish.

This list would be linked to relevant associated contaminant information (stored in the database mentioned below), which could be used to prioritize or group the individual contaminants, as users of the list deem appropriate. • An assessment of threat scenarios which could result in harmful exposure of the public or utility personnel to drinking water contaminants. • A contaminant database for consultation by approved individuals and organizations that describes critically important information on contaminants with the potential to harm drinking water supplies and systems.

The panel’s review of this application is discussed in the previous section. b Improved Understanding of the Environmental Fate of Contaminants. A better understanding of contaminant fate and transport in various source waters (including both surface water and groundwater) and within water systems is clearly 38 A Review of the EPA Water Security Action Plan integral to determining how pollutants that are intentionally added to such systems might behave. Nonetheless, this need is stated in such broad terms that it is impossible to define logical starting points for attempting such research, which should necessarily be cognizant of the very large body of work that has occurred on this topic over the last 30 years.
