Emerging Contaminants in Water Supply

detail of a water cascade

According to the Water Quality Association, emerging contaminants in the water supply are defined as chemicals that had not previously been detected (or were previously found in far lesser concentrations) and the risk they pose to human health and the environment is not fully understood.

Examples of these emerging contaminants include:

  • Pharmaceuticals – up to 90% of oral drugs pass through the human body and end up in the water supply.
  • Personal Care Products (PCPs) such as soaps, cosmetics and fragrances.
  • Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs) – Trace amounts of these contaminants are being discovered in water throughout the country and are substances that may interfere with the function of hormones in the body.
