Emerging Contaminant: 1,4-Dioxane

Source: Calgon Carbon Corporation

1,4-Dioxane is a synthetic industrial chemical which is completely miscible in water. It is highly mobile in groundwater and is not shown to be readily biodegradable in the environment.

It is classified by the U.S. EPA as likely to be carcinogenic to humans by all routes of exposure. Currently, there is not a federal maximum contaminant level established for 1,4-Dioxane in drinking water, but many states are developing recommended limits.
