The Environmental Law Institute convened a one-day workshop on May 6, 1997 to allow citizens in the Washington, DC area to discuss the new community right-to-know amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. The objectives of the workshop were to: (1) develop citizen awareness about drinking water quality issues; (2) help state and local governments understand the information needs of citizens who want to learn more about the quality of their drinking water; and (3) help water companies prepare user-friendly information about the quality of drinking water.
