The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding an initial workshop on the development of regulations for aircraft public water systems. This workshop will examine and discuss the various aspects of aircraft public water systems, including an overview of aircraft water systems and watering points, existing drinking water regulations for aircraft water systems, the scope of issues for proposing regulations tailored to aircraft water systems, as well as preliminary options for a proposed rulemaking.
This is the first workshop in a series designed to gain perspectives from representatives from industry, government, public interest groups and the general public. The EPA has been working with the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration to plan this event.
The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time, on Wednesday, January 18 and Thursday, January 19, 2006. The meeting will be held at the Hotel Washington, 515 15th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20004.
