Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), including pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), are increasingly being detected at low levels in surface and groundwater drinking water supplies. As the scope of the potential impacts of these compounds grows, it is important for environmental scientists and regulatory agencies to be able to evaluate these impacts on human health and aquatic life.
The course will present information on issues surrounding some of the more widespread emerging contaminants including:
- Per and poly fluorinated substances (PFAS)
- 1,4 Dioxane
- And others
Additionally, speakers will focus on procedures for compound identification, regulatory status, toxicity impacts, laboratory analysis challenges, and possible treatment options.
Who Should Attend?
This course will explore some of the concerns created by these emerging contaminants for owners of contaminated sites, environmental professionals investigating potentially contaminated sites, water purveyors/operators, and commercial lenders.
