Abstract

The problem of controlling carcinogens in drinking water is one of decision-making under uncertainty. Although much information has been gained in the last eight years, pervasive uncertainties remain. The paper identifies some of the trends in the accumulation of the evidence, and attempts to evaluate the currently existing uncertainty.
