State and national drinking water standards and health guidelines

Health Guideline 150 ppb

The health guideline of 150 ppb for cyanide was defined by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as a public health goal, the level of a drinking water contaminant that does not pose a significant health risk. This health guideline protects against harm to the brain and nervous system.

ppb = parts per billion.

EPA Maximum Contaminant
Level (MCL) 200 ppb

The enforceable federal standard that defines the highest level of a contaminant allowed in drinking water.

ppb = parts per billion.

EPA Maximum Contaminant
Level Goal (MCLG)200 ppb

A non-enforceable federal health guideline. For cancer-causing chemicals, these health goals are typically set to zero.
