Environmental Issues Forum to Feature Emerging Contaminants in PA Waters

The November 20 Joint Legislative Air and Water Pollution Control and Conservation Committee’s Environmental Issues Forum will feature a presentation on emerging contaminants in Pennsylvania waters.

The guest presenter is J. Kent Crawford, Water Quality Specialist for the Pennsylvania Water Science Center of the U.S. Geological Survey, who will speak about pharmaceutical compounds and physician-prescribed antibiotics among the compounds known as “emerging contaminants.”

Crawford, who has over 30 years of experience in a variety of water quality projects, will discuss what is known about the occurrence of these contaminants in Pennsylvania streams and ground water and whether they present cause for concern.

The Forum will be held in Room 205 of the Ryan Building Harrisburg starting at noon.
