Abstract

This project developed, justified, and documented statistical tools and protocols that water utilities can use to design and implement monitoring programs for endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) within a watershed. The project also demonstrated the applicability of these tools and protocols by designing and executing a sampling program in the Assabet River Watershed. Published in 2017.
