Members participating with APNEP’s Contaminant Management Workgroup will pursue collaborative initiatives aligned with the following APNEP Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) actions:

  • Action A2.4: Facilitate risk assessments of targeted personal care and pharmaceutical products in the aquatic system.
  • Action A2.5: Facilitate risk assessments of heavy metals and other toxic contaminants in sediments.
  • Action C1.1: Establish contaminant* management strategies for waters not meeting water quality standards.
  • Action C1.2: Facilitate the implementation of existing contaminant management strategies.

*Contaminants generally refer to pathogens, toxics, and nutrients.

For a more detailed explanation of these actions, APNEP’s CCMP can be found here.

Related to these actions, APNEP will facilitate and support a working group to study and recommend appropriate nutrient standards for North Carolina’s estuaries. This work will advance according to North Carolina’s Nutrient Criteria Development Plan using the Albemarle Sound as a pilot study area. APNEP has invited this workgroup to adopt the nutrient criteria development process as one of its initial efforts.

APNEP staff support: Jim Hawhee (primary), Dean Carpenter
