Subject: Public Health Goal for Hexavalent Chromium: ACWA’s Concerns regarding July 6, 2022 OEHHA Memorandum discussing Five Year Update

Letter excerpt:

The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) writes to express our concerns regarding the July 6, 2022 memorandum (Memo) from the Office of Environmental Protection Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) to the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) providing the reasons that OEHHA has not performed a “full review” of the public health goal (PHG) for hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)). ACWA represents over 460 local public water agencies that collectively supply approximately ninety percent of the water distributed for domestic, agricultural, and business uses in California. Some ACWA member agencies own and operate public water systems that may be regulated under a new Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for Cr(VI) depending on the level of the MCL. ACWA recognizes the importance of public health protection in this area.
