EPA Victoria have been undertaking an assessment of emerging contaminants in biota, soils, sediment and water in Victoria over the last 18 months.

Paul and Paula will present the results of their work looking at ambient concentrations of PFAS, brominated flame retardants, short chain paraffins, phthalates and pesticides across Victoria. We will discuss some of the future directions of the work and opportunities to work with QAEHS.
