Contaminants of Emerging Concern
Information Sheets and Screening Profiles
When a full review is completed by the CEC initiative (Program Information Sheet (PDF)) for a chemical of emerging concern, two web-based documents are created. One is a technical document that provides a detailed summary of the basis of the health-based guidance calculation and the second is a general information sheet. Both documents are posted on the Human Health-Based Water Guidance Table.
The following screening profiles have been prepared for contaminants nominated to the CEC program, screened by CEC program staff, but not yet selected for full review. Some of the chemicals listed below were evaluated further using rapid assessment methods for pharmaceuticals or pesticides and the results are included in the profile. However, for the chemicals listed below, MDH has not derived health-based guidance values.
