The Science Advisory Board's (SAB) advisory panel on perchlorate has scheduled two teleconferences to discuss its draft report on EPA's white paper addressing recent epidemiological evidence on perchlorate. Perchlorate is both naturally occurring and commercially manufactured and is used in explosives, fireworks, rocket fuel and for other industrial purposes. Perchlorate often is a contaminant of concern at sites undergoing investigation and cleanup.

The teleconferences are scheduled for December 5th and December 7th from 2:00-5:00 ET each day. To listen to these teleconferences, contact Thomas Carpenter at 202-564-8885.
