Nonpoint sources of water pollution. Pollution sources and water quality -- 3. Water protection: The basics of water supply. Basic water treatment. Beyond basic water treatment. An issue of equality. Chemical monitoring and warnings for regulated pollutants. The National drinking water contaminant occurrence database. Unregulated pollutants and monitoring regulations. Setting new drinking water standards. Why consumers should be concerned. Approaches to mitigate chemical exposure. Water pollution and risk -- 4. Living with the risk of polluted water: The burden of proof. Permissible pollution. The dose makes the poison. Basic concepts of dose. Mechanism of toxicity. Biotransformation and detoxification. Toxicity and defining standards. Timing is everything. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Pharmaceutical pollutants. Pharmaceuticals detected in the environment. Living with risk. Population, pollution, risk, and precaution. The risk assessment process -- 5. Managing risk and drinking water quality: Learning from the past and present. Risk and economics. An alternative approach. Consumer-based protection. Potential action by the water industry. Potential governmental actions. An alternative risk management program -- Appendices: 1-1.
