Drinking Water Quality Council Meeting

November 29, 2017 to October 29, 2017
Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza Meeting Room 6, 100 S Mall Arterial, Albany, NY 12242 map

The Drinking Water Quality Council (DWQC) was established by New York State Public Health Law § 1113 (PHL § 1113), to provide recommendations to the New York State Department of Health on emerging contaminants in drinking water. PHL § 1113 was enacted as part of several measures within the 2017-2018 State Budget designed to maintain and improve the quality of New York’s drinking water supplies and infrastructure. Standing at the forefront of the State’s efforts to protect public health from threats posed by emerging contaminants, the DWQC will address some of the most technically challenging aspects of environmental health and drinking water regulation.

DWQC meetings are open to the public. A public comment session will be held at the end of the meeting. Verbal comment is limited to 2 minutes. Learn more about the Drinking Water Quality Council.
