Panelists were asked to react to the earlier discussions and answer questions that lay out the challenges to health:   • Have we missed any of the new stressors at the interface of source water and drinking water? • How important are these stressors to human health? • If these stressors are important, where do we go from here? • Where are we in the process of meeting these challenges? • Is there a disconnection between the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act? If so, how will we balance recreation, ecological protection, and drinking water sources?
