Monitoring, Assessing Sources, and Potential Impacts of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds from Households and Personal Care Products in Waterways in the Susquehanna River Basin Through Citizen Science
In May 2018, September 2019, and June 2021, citizen scientists collected a surface water sample from one of 60 locations across the Pennsylvania portion of the Susquehanna River Basin. Samples were analyzed for classes of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) including antimicrobials, parabens, phthalates, UV filters, and soluble fragrances that can be found in a variety of household and personal care products. The following dataset and supporting "figures" file provides information on the results of these water samples, assesses potential sources (i.e., land use, presence of municipal wastewater treatment plants, etc.) and speculates impacts to the aquatic environment.
