- March 20 - Philip E. Clapp, president of the National Environmental Trust is available for TV and radio interviews regarding EPA
Administrator Whitman's scheduled announcement that she will
withdraw the arsenic standard for drinking water today.
Whitman's withdrawal of arsenic standards flies in the face of
scientific evidence that arsenic causes cancer and other
debilitating diseases, and occurs in unsafe levels in water supplies in many areas in the United States.
