Call for Abstracts 


The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC)
is seeking presentations for the 2007 Northeast Water Science Forum -
Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products: State of the Science.  The
primary goal of this two-day conference is to bring together scientists,
regulators, water and wastewater professionals, and other technical
experts to disseminate and evaluate the latest research findings and
technical data on pharmaceuticals and personal care products in the
water environment. In addition, it will be a unique opportunity to
interface with experts working on this topic across the nation,
providing an opportunity to enhance technology transfer and increase
coordination among the entities interested in this issue. Please see the
attached document for more information and a list of potential
conference presentation topics.


Possible session topics include, but are not limited to the following
list of issues:


- identifying PPCPs of concern;

- occurrence of PPCPs (in Northeast) in surface water, groundwater and
coastal areas;

- PPCP impacts on aquatic ecosystems;

- PPCP impacts on human health;

- fate and removal of PPCPs in drinking water systems;

- fate and removal of PPCPs in wastewater systems (e.g., onsite systems,
sludges, biosolids);

- PPCP policy, regulatory, and legal issues;

- sampling and analytical methods;

- public education (e.g., risk communication, product labeling
programs); and

- product stewardship (e.g., take back programs, collection programs).
