Compounds of Emerging Concern
An emerging topic in the water industry is the recent (last 10 years or so) detection of "compounds of emerging concern," or CECs. CECs are detected at very low concentrations and are unregulated by federal and state water quality agencies. CECs include pharmaceuticals and personal care products that turn up in any water supplies where these products are applied or consumed. Previous City Manager, Kevin Burke, recognizing the importance of water to the future of our community, organized an Advisory Panel of 12 local, state and nationally recognized researchers, scientists and industry professionals to help understand what CECs mean locally. The City's CEC website is here. The website contains information about public meetings on this topic, staff or panel reports on CECs, and reports to City Council on CECs. Additionally, the Water Research Foundation has published several information pieces to communicate on this topic, based on their research. We've chosen to share several of these below. For more information visit the Water Research Foundation's website.
