The ASTSWMO Board of Directors established the Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CEC) Steering Committee in October 2019 to provide a forum for ASTSWMO representatives to discuss Federal and State regulatory, policy, and technical developments regarding CECs and to recommend research projects and training activities to our Subcommittees, Focus Groups, and Tasks Forces. The Steering Committee defines CECs as: “any physical, chemical, biological, or radiological substance or matter in any environmental media that may pose a risk to human and/or ecological health, is under regulated, and the presence, frequency of occurrence or source of which is not yet well understood, routinely monitored, and/or may lack analytical methods.” The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the Committee to the ASTSWMO membership, provide information on their objectives and initial activities, and solicit feedback and recommendations from members about current State priorities and challenges concerning CEC regulatory and policy development and implementation.
