These are the September 25 and 29, 1978 hearings on "Federal Safe Drinking Water Act--Oversight," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Health and the Environment of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the opening statement of James T. Broyhill: "I am sure that all of us share the concern and common goal of keeping America's drinking water clean and safe of potential health contaminants. I recognize that there is considerable controversy between the EPA and the Nation's water industry over the justification, administration, and costs of these proposed regulations. Accordingly, I hope that these oversight hearings will serve to more clearly delineate areas of concern as well as areas of understanding by both parties in an effort to find a reasonable ground of agreement."
