Navigating and addressing the myriad of compounds of emerging concern (CECs) is a challenge because CECs include hundreds of compounds where the occurrence, health implications, and treatment are uncertain or unknown. CECs in this evaluation included unregulated disinfection byproducts, endocrine disrupting compounds, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and industrial compounds. A systematic approach for evaluating CECs can help utilities determine what CECs to monitor, determine CEC levels, and identify a CEC control approach (if necessary). A case study for a southwestern wastewater utility will be used to illustrate the CEC evaluation.
