The University of Minnesota reviewed the process used by the Minnesota
Department of Health’s Contaminants of Emerging Concern (MDH CEC) program to
select chemicals to develop health-based guidance values. The reviewers concluded
that the CEC program staff use a process that is overall thoughtfully developed,
scientifically sound, and justifiable; however it is inadequately explained to
stakeholders and could be refined to be clearer. A larger group of stakeholders
around the state should be engaged to help identify chemicals of concern and needs
for guidance values.
