The article focuses on various water quality issues concerning water utilities in the US. AWWA committees have surveyed utilities to determine concerns with additional inorganics. The 10 US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regions were combined into six geographical regions to provide a more consolidated regional summary. A contact list of state regulatory agencies, developed from an Internet search, was used to e-mail the nomination letter to the designated contact in each state. Several state drinking water regulatory offices required a telephone call to ascertain contact information. By November 2007, the focus of the effort shifted to following up on questionnaires already distributed to utilities in an effort to broaden the pool of states from which reports were obtained. Utilities and state regulatory agencies most frequently identified iron and manganese as a concern.
