About the Council on Water Quality


The Council on Water Quality is supported by a subset of the member companies of the Perchlorate Study Group, including Lockheed Martin, Aerojet, Tronox and American Pacific Corporation. In the past decade, the Perchlorate Study Group has worked cooperatively with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to increase scientific and medical understanding of perchlorate’s risk to human health.

Our Mission

Grounded in the most credible, up-to-date science and education, the Council on Water Quality is dedicated to improving the public dialogue on the facts about perchlorate in drinking and irrigation water, as well as food, and the potential impacts of perchlorate regulation on human health, water supply, water rates and taxpayers.

To provide public agencies, businesses, the media and the public with a greater understanding of these issues, the Council on Water Quality will assist in explaining scientific information related to the effects of perchlorate in water; state and federal policies and programs; regulatory issues; and treatment technologies.
