Overview: Caltha LLP provided technical support to the trade group and its members to address proposed water quality standards for atrazine, a widely used herbicide. A draft ambient water quality standard for atrazine was being proposed by the US EPA Office of Water and was being reviewed by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Science Advisory Panel, convened in Washington DC. Caltha reviewed underlying studies and other research which were being used to derive the proposed standards, and provided oral testimony before the SAP on technical concerns regarding the calculation of the proposed standards.
