Research Areas

General Drinking Water Research

Disinfection Byproducts NYC pilot

Human exposure to disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in tap water has been associated with elevated incidence of cancer and adverse reproductive outcomes. Reducing this exposure is a major challenge to the drinking water industry. Current and recently completed projects on DBPs include:

 

Pharmaceuticals & Personal Care ProductsBarnstable

Over the past 10 years, we have begun to recognize the extent to which PPCPs and endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) are found in the aquatic environment.

Advanced and Innovative Oxidants

Oxidation processes are critical for destruction of organic and reduced inorganic pollutants. A current project in this area is:

Natural Organic MatterMDCBryan

All surface and groundwaters have dissolved natural organic matter (NOM) derived from aquatic and terrestrial plants.
