Water Quality Standards and Criteria Footnotes

Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL). The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in U.S. drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLG as feasible using the best available analytical and treatment technologies and taking cost into consideration. MCLs are enforceable standards in the U.S. The Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for Acrylamide is 0 �g/L

Footnote A2:

When Acrylamide is used in drinking water systems, the combination (or product) of dose and monomer level shall not exceed that equivalent to a polyacrylamide polymer containing 0.05% monomer dosed at 1 mg/L.
