How to Join FSTRAC

Any state, tribal, or federal agency engaged in drinking water standard setting, toxicology, and risk communication, is encouraged to join. FSTRAC activities provide an opportunity for state, tribal and federal representatives to

  • become more familiar with the latest regulations and methodologies utilized,
  • form a network amongst agencies providing similar services nation wide, and
  • discuss new scientific information affecting human health and environmental risk assessment.

New members should be willing to participate in ongoing FSTRAC work-group projects, by attending meetings, participating in document reviews, or conducting surveys.
