White Paper: “Aquatic Life Criteria for Contaminants of Emerging Concern: General Challenges and Recommendations”

Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), including pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), are increasingly being detected at low levels in surface water, and there is concern that these compounds may have an impact on aquatic life. It is important for EPA to be able to evaluate the potential impact of PPCPs on aquatic life and have an approach for determining protective levels for aquatic organisms.

PPCPs in the Environment

PPCPs in the Environment.
LIFE DOWN THE DRAIN – is a special report by students who took an online course in Conservation Biology (Natrs 450/550) through WSU’s Distance Degree Program (DDP) during fall semester, 2003.  These seniors and graduate students each completed an independent study of the issue of PPCPs in the environment and prepared short written reports of their findings, which are the basis for this special report.
