Secondary drinking water standards are non-regulatory guidelines for aesthetic characteristics, including taste, color, and odor. Health advisories.

It emphasizes the need for expert judgment in this process and for a conservative approach that considers public health protection as the first.

Common drinking water contaminants. Studies have shown that there can be more than 80 common contaminants in treated drinking water that may pose a risk to human health. These contaminants fall into two separate categories, acute and chronic effects. Acute effects occur within hours or days of the time that a person consumes a contaminant.The division also assembled a comprehensive list of resources for public water systems, including water treatment optimization for cyanotoxins, recommendations for public water systems to manage cyantoxins in drinking water, methods for identifying blooms, and sample templates to use when issuing drinking-water health advisories.

Health Advisories. EPA has established health advisories for PFOA and PFOS based on the agency’s assessment of the latest peer-reviewed science to provide drinking water system operators, and state, tribal and local officials who have the primary responsibility for overseeing these systems, with information on the health risks of these chemicals, so they can .
