OUTREACH COORDINATOR FOR THE UNREGULATED CONTAMINANT MONITORING REGULATION: AN INTERNSHIP WITH THE UNITED STATES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
This document summarizes the author’s internship experience working on the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation (UCMR) for the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation was designed, as part of the Safe Drinking Water Act, to collect occurrence data of unregulated contaminants of interest in drinking water. All information collected will be used to support the creation of new drinking water regulations. The author’s internship with EPA focused on the public outreach side of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation. The author edited the quarterly newsletter The UCMR Update, which provided information to stakeholders concerning events within the UCMR. The author also served as the coordinator for the large system Aeromonas data and as a tester for the Safe Drinking Water Accession and Review Database (SDWARS) that was used to store UCMR information. Finally, the author also performed laboratory validation work for Standard Method 5910B and proposed EPA Method 415.3.
