The development and marketing of point-of-entry-entry/point-of-use (POE/POU) devices has become a multi-million dollar business, and is projected to become even larger with the annual increase in numbers of new homes. Cooperation between the equipment manufacturers and vendors and the regulatory agencies will continue to be important to insure that the public receives a quality product water. Justification for and cost of POE/POU treated water are issues of concern to the consumer, and water providers will have to become more proactive to convince the consumers of the safety and wholesomeness of water furnished by public and private community systems. Institutional/jurisdictional arrangements need to be explored further to identify effective and acceptable institutional models for dealing with the POE/POE issue.
