Sustainability Commission - Regular
Meeting Date: 03/21/2019  
Subject:    Presentation from Coon Creek Watershed
From: Andy Kintop

INTRODUCTION
The sustainability commission will welcome a presentation from Britta Dornfeld, an employee of the Coon Creek Watershed District. Dornfeld will be presenting on a grant from the Minnesota Department of Health on doing outreach around the topic of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs). CECs are chemicals that are now showing up in water that haven't been seen before. This is because they're new or we didn't have the equipment to properly detect them- they include things such as microplastics, personal care products, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals. She has been specifically focusing on outreach around pesticide use reduction and proper pharmaceutical disposal for the grant.
RECOMMENDATION
The commission will be furthering their knowledge about CECs upon a presentation from Britta Dornfeld from the Coon Creek Watershed District.
