The Science Advisory Board includes 16 experts in toxicology, public health, ecology, engineering and other related fields. The board studies ways North Carolina can better address issues related to new and emerging contaminants, including GenX and hexavalent chromium. Their expertise will also assist the state departments of Environmental Quality and Health and Human Services by recommending reviews and evaluations of contaminants, acting as consultants on DEQ’s determinations to regulate contaminants, and helping the agencies identify contaminants of concern and determine which contaminants should be studied further.
