The first chapter of this book presents a framework and background on the regulatory context of emerging contaminants in general and then is followed by chapters that examine four contaminants at different stages in the emerging contaminant life cycle: 1,4-dioxane, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, hexavalent chromium, and 1,2,3-trichloropropane. The text reviews current information on the contaminants' sources, toxicology, regulation, and tools for characterization and treatment. The final chapter discusses opportunities in managing emerging contaminants to help balance uncertainty, compress life cycle, and optimize outcomes.
