In order to gather and summarize information and data on point of use/point of entry (POU/POE) devices, a committee was established by the Environmental Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers to accomplish this objective. Various tasks were assigned to committee members and this paper addresses the following: (1) develop a list of the types of POU/POE devices that are currently being used, (2) determine what contaminants are being removed by these devices, (3) collect data showing the effectiveness of the devices (especially field data), and (4) collect any available data on the cost of the devices.
