Emerging Contaminants:
Tick Tock


Approximately 120 new chemicals are created each year due to ever-improving industry and technology markets. Releases of these chemicals into the environment can occur during their production, use and disposal leading to the contamination of soil and water resources. Emerging water contaminants can be classified into various classes including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (e.g., PFOS, PFOA), pesticides and herbicides (e.g., 1,2,3-trichloropropane), industrial solvents (e.g., 1,4-dioxane), gasoline additives (e.g., MTBE), , pharmaceuticals (antibiotics/drugs), personal care products (e.g., polycyclic musks), disinfection byproducts (e.g., NDMA), and inorganics (e.g., perchlorate). This session will provide key information on the detection, fate and transport, risk assessment, treatment and regulation of emerging contaminants.
