Drinking Water Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CEC): Communications and Outreach - EH: Minnesota Department of Health

Contaminants of Emerging Concern
Communications and Outreach

MDH provides frequent and clear communication about program activities, coordinates with other Clean Water Fund project partners, and reports progress to the Legislative Coordinating Commission. The program delivers useful information on contaminants of emerging concern to interested individuals and groups, both inside and outside of state government, so that appropriate action may be taken to prevent these contaminants from endangering public health.

CEC program staff have established a Contaminant Screening Criteria and Prioritization Development Task Group, a Communication, Education, and Outreach Task Group, and an Advisory Forum. The annual Advisory Forum meeting was held on February 3, 2013.

Additionally, staff meet with various representatives from local, state, and federal government agencies, academic programs, non-profit groups, industry groups, and drinking water and wastewater professional picture of home and garden showorganizations. Staff also regularly present program findings at technical conferences and to interested agencies and organizations. The program is also represented at various public events throughout the state including the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show (as shown in picture).
