November 24, 1-2PM ET: SYP Water Talk: Protecting Our Water: Investigating the Spatio-temporal Trends and Bioaccumulative Potential of Emerging Substances of Concern in the Bow River in Calgary, Daniela Pulgarin Zapata and Seth Bumagat
Micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products are present at extremely low concentrations in aquatic environments, and have the potential to cause harmful effects in exposed organisms. Due to the uncertainty related to their exposure, they are considered emerging substances of concern (ESOCs). In this presentation, Seth Bumagat will discuss spatiotemporal trends of ESOCs in the Bow River as part of the City of Calgary’s ESOCs monitoring program. This program began in 2015 and, to this date, accumulated ~21,000 data points. Daniela Pulgarin Zapata will delve into her research as she investigates the bioaccumulative potential of ESOCs through an artificial streams facility at the Pine Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Calgary.
