Emerging Contaminants Workshop
The University of Arizona Water Sustainability Program in collaboration with the Arizona Water Institute and The University of Arizona Superfund Hazardous Waste Program is offering a one-day workshop to inform participants about "Trace chemical contaminants in water and wastewater - semiarid perspectives." Geared to the needs of water managers and decision makers, this workshop will provide the latest on emerging water contaminants of concern in the state.
 
The Emerging Contaminants Workshop will be held Friday, March 2, 2007 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Maricopa County Cooperative Extension Office, 4341 East Broadway Road in Phoenix.
 
Ed Furlong of the USGS, and co-author of the defining 2002 report on pharmaceuticals, hormones and organic contaminants in US streams will lead off the morning session, followed by Gail Cordy (formerly of the USGS) who will give an overview of the Arizona situation.
 
Noted experts from The University of Arizona, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the private sector will follow with talks on the most recent research findings of occurrence, environmental impacts, health effects, fate and treatment for an array of emerging chemical contaminants in our waterways including estrogens, PBDEs, new disinfection byproducts, nanoparticles and heavy metals. Perspectives from ADEQ and Arizona Water Institute will wrap up the day.
 
Registration information and the agenda will be posted on the Water Sustainability Program web site as plans are finalized. Look for email updates on this event.
