Description/Notes: 

University of Maryland Extension will be hosting monthly webinars on various water quality related topics. Join Andrew Lazur, Water Quality Specialist, as he dives into water topics that affect us all. These webinars will take place via Zoom on the dates shown below, each from 12 noon until 12:40, allowing time for Q & A at the end. 

The growth in production and use of industrial chemicals and personal care products has resulted in these contaminants reaching surface and ground waters. Many of these compounds either have been shown to cause environmental damage or are detrimental to human health. This webinar will present an overview of many classifications of CEC’s including organic waste compounds, endocrine disruptors, personal care products and PFAS.
