Constituents of Emerging Concern (CECs) in Aquatic Ecosystems
Advisory Panel on Constituents of Emerging Concern (CECs)
In April 2012, a scientific advisory panel named the “Ecosystems Panel (Panel)” provided recommendations for the monitoring of CECs in aquatic ecosystems. The recommendations are presented in a report titled, “Monitoring Strategies for Chemicals of Emerging Concern (CECs) in California’s Aquatic Ecosystems.” In the report, the Panel recommended using a risk-based screening framework to identify an initial list of CECs to monitor. The Panel also recommended implementing an adaptive phase monitoring approach to assess the presence of the CECs and their potential risk to the environment. The Panel was funded by the State Water Resources Control Board and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Water Board Staff has prepared a report that presents the Panel’s recommendations.
