About emerging contaminants

The DNR works with many partners at the local, state and federal level to identify and address new/emerging contamination issues across the state as part of its mission to protect Wisconsin's public health and environment.

"Emerging contaminants" is a general term, defined as chemicals that:

  • may pose a risk to human health and the environment;
  • are not yet fully understood;
  • may not yet be subject to state or federal regulatory criteria; and/or
  • were not historically included in site investigations.
