Abstract : Drinking water criteria for diisopropyl methylphosphonate (DIMP) for the protection of human health were calculated by the basic formula proposed by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The no-observable effect level (NOEL) was derived from the available toxicological data base for 90-day studies in the dog, rat, and mouse. It is recommended that the drinking water criterion for DIMP be set at 26.3 mg/L, based on an uncertainty factor for 100 and an extrapolation of the body weight of the dog being the most sensitive of the three animals evaluated. Keywords: Diisopropyl Methylphosphonate pollutant, Toxicity, Drinking water criteria.
