GBlist: Potable water systems

I am trying to find some sources of information on possible health risks
or concerns (however far flung) on the use of potable plastic water pipe
for water systems (c-pvc, polybutylene, etc.) Especially any info. on
the use of treatment (disinfection systems) in conjunction with plastic
piping, ie. the effects of corrosive elements
(oxygen,ozone,temp.,etc.)on plastic piping. I am aware of the the
material breakdown of polybutylene piping or joint material with
chlorine but what about the potential of health risks from the material
Any help, thanks
