Project Description

The aim of Project 1127 was to help the water industry better manage and understand contaminants of emerging concern (CEC), through:

  • The creation of a CEC database
  • The development of a classification system based on source, treatment and effects to facilitate management of CEC by the water industry
  • The development of risk assessment approaches based on different classifications (i.e., source, treatment and effects) and integrate this functionality into the database as a prioritisation tool
  • Guidance on including CEC into current water quality risk management plans/frameworks (e.g. ADWG, AGWR)
