This project aggregated and evaluated management plans for compounds of emerging concern (CECs) that have been employed or are being considered in North America, Europe, and Australia. Strengths and weaknesses of each were identified, considering a holistic water approach that takes into account environmental and public health. A framework for assessing the financial, environmental, and social costs and benefits for managing CECs in surface water was developed, and this triple bottom line analysis was then used to evaluate selected approaches. Published in 2018.

Appendices K and L are posted below under Web Tools.

A Phase I interim report, published in July 2016, is available below under Project Papers.
