    Experts are steadily finding new or previously unrecognized contaminants in our waterways and drinking water systems, yet their risk to human health and the environment are not yet fully understood. These emerging contaminates come from a variety of sources, including our everyday consumer and pharmaceutical products, such as sunscreens, soap and medicines.    Some are naturally occurring, but become more problematic when excessive nutrients are loaded to surface water through human activity.  There are potential environmental and health risks associated with many of these contaminants. Please join this panel of experts–Dr. Andy Lindstrom, Ms. Sarah Lowe and Dr. Wayne Carmichael–who, along with their respective state and national agencies, are seeking to improve our understanding and management of several emerging contaminants affecting the state of Ohio. These panelists, along with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s recently appointed Director Laurie Stevenson, will address some of the emerging biological, chemical, and particulates pollutants in our state. This EPN Breakfast program will feature an extended educational session, facilitated by the Water Management Association of Ohio, Ohio Water Resources Center, and TerrAqua that will engage these experts to discuss specific contaminants. Cost: Full WMAO program = $40, includes EPN Breakfast EPN Breakfast only = $10 All programs free for students
