Section 1412(e)~2) of the 1974 act called for results of the National Acad- emy of Sciences study to be reported to Congress no later than 2 years after the date of enactment of the title. The Safe Drinking Water Amendments of 1977 authorized continuation of the agreement with the National Acad- emy of Sciences to rense the study "reflecting new information which has become available since the most recent previous report [and which] shall be reported to Congress each two years thereafter."
