Emerging contaminants are a group of compounds that have
recently been identified in wastewater, streams, and
ground water but are not regulated. Some of these are
known as endocrine disruptors (which are compounds that
can interfere with the endocrine systems of animals, and
so affect reproduction). These compounds include
pharmaceuticals and other compounds that can affect the
normal functions of humans and animals. Join us in
conversation with Patrick Phillips, Hydrologist, US
Geological Survey, Troy, NY.
