GLRPPR Sector Resource: Emerging Contaminants Targeted in a Reconnaissance of Groundwater and Untreated Drinking-Water Sources

Title:
Emerging Contaminants Targeted in a Reconnaissance of Groundwater and Untreated Drinking-Water Sources

Abstract:
Two national-scale reconnaissance studies recently conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) were the first to collect baseline information on the environmental occurrence of pharmaceuticals, personal-care products, detergents, flame retardants, naturally occurring sterols, and other organic contaminants in ground water and untreated sources of drinking water in the United States. These contaminants are commonly associated with human- and animal-waste sources, though other natural and human-related sources are also possible. These studies follow a previous reconnaissance of U.S. streams. Links to more detailed information and published articles are included on this website
