The CEC team encourages you to nominate a contaminant that you think is of emerging concern. Please submit nominations for specific contaminants rather than groups of substances (such as "antibiotics" or "herbicides"). To view a list of substances that MDH has or is currently reviewing, go to our most recent Nominated Contaminants Status Table (PDF)(opens in a new window). Also, please refer to our Nomination Resources page (opens in a new window) for links that may assist you in responding to the questions listed below.
The name of the contaminant is the only information we require, but the more information we have the better. Please refer to an example nomination(PDF)(opens in a new window), provided for illustrative purposes only.
MDH is not able to conduct a full review and/or develop health based guidance for every contaminant that is nominated. Please Contact Us (opens in a new window) with questions or comments.
At the discretion of MDH, CEC staff will develop guidance for contaminants that are not nominated by an outside party and that are not assessed through a selection process.
