Abstract:This report was created at the request of the Illinois Legislature in IL HB5741, passed in May 2018. It is a review of the state of scientific knowledge known about contaminants of emerging concern (CEC) in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Concentrations of CEC in WWTPs and treatment technologies in the U.S. and other countries are discussed as well as U.S. federal and state laws. This document serves as factual evidence of CEC in WWTPs and should not be construed as advocating for a specific view on this issue.
