Find a Contaminant


The Find a Contaminant page allows you to search for a particular contaminant and retrieve information about that contaminant, any treatment processes that have been tested against it, the properties of that contaminant, and its fate & transport information.

On the page you have multiple search options for finding a particular contaminant:

  • Search box – You are able to enter a contaminants name, CAS number, any synonyms, and the contaminant type (microbial, radiological, or chemical).  Once the information has been entered you can click the search button and all relevant results will be displayed.


  • Rolodex search – You are able to click on the letter associated to the first letter in the contaminants name and return all results for that letter.  A second rolodex also appears that allows you to sort by contaminant type.


  • Manual Search – You are able to search through the matrix of results to find a contaminant.  The matrix shows the contaminants name, CAS number, any synonyms, and the contaminant type (microbial, radiological, or chemical).

When the page loads initially page ALL contaminants are displayed in the results matrix.  The results are listed alphabetically by contaminant name.  Once a result has been found, you are able to click on the name of a contaminant to go to the contaminant’s overview page.  You receive an error message if no results are found when performing a search.
