Water Contaminant Information Tool [website]   [open html - 13KB]

"The Water Contaminant Information Tool (WCIT) is a secure, on-line database that provides current, reliable information on chemical, biological, and radiological contaminants of concern for water security. Access to this password-protected tool will be granted to personnel from drinking water and wastewater utilities, State Primacy (primary enforcement) Agencies, federal officials (including government laboratory personnel), and water associations. The website contains instructions on how to apply for access to the WCIT database. Contaminants of concern for water security are those contaminants that may or may not be regulated, but that could pose a significant threat to public health if accidentally or intentionally introduced into drinking water. The WCIT database includes some contaminants that are not regulated because they are not typically found in drinking water, but could cause harm if intentionally introduced into a drinking water system."
