This bill authorizes the Drinking Water Quality Institute (DWQI) to study the issue of 1,2,3-trichloropropane (1,2,3-TCP) levels in drinking water and recommend to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) a maximum contaminant level (mcl) for 1,2,3-TCP. The bill further authorizes the DEP to adopt the mcl for 1,2,3-TCP based upon the recommendation made by the DWQI. The chemical, 1,2,3-TCP, is a man-made and persistent substance used for paint removal and other purposes. It has been classified a "likely" carcinogen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. According to the DEP, it is a potent genotoxic carcinogen which occurs in drinking water at levels resulting in significant cancer risk based on test results from New Jersey public and non-public water supplies.
