The New Pollutants Brewing in Our Water
Date:11/11/2009

Virtually every place where water and chemicals combine becomes a potential source of endocrine disrupting compounds entering sources of drinking water.

At present, there are no water quality standards for endocrine disrupting contaminants. “The federal government has already taken steps to limit so-called legacy pollutants from damaging the natural environment and human health,” said Potomac Conservancy President Hedrick Belin. “It now needs to employ 21st-century scientific testing and update the regulatory framework to deal with the emerging threat of endocrine disrupting compounds found in the Potomac River and its tributaries.”

Potomac Conservancy views the following actions as opportunities to break the cycle of allowing endocrine disruptors to enter our environment unchecked:

 
  • Enforce and strengthen water quality regulations
  • Call on EPA to incorporate health and exposure data from drug and chemical manufacturers into the agency’s chemical testing profiles
  • Provide funding to develop treatment technology, retrofit our wastewater treatment plants, and upgrade drinking water treatment facilities
  • Resolve the problem of agricultural biosolids, which are implicated in the problem as well
  • Introduce legislation to establish and implement programs to recover unused prescription drugs rather than having them enter drinking water sources
