Toelichting (Engels) The screening of resources for drinking water is an essential step to obtain information on the quality of the water, in particular the presence of emerging (un)known contaminants. However, screening is just a first step in the full assessment of whether or not a compound forms a potential threat to the drinking water quality. Additional steps that are required include (1) the chemical identification, quantification and chemical characterization, (2) a toxicological assessment and (3) a treatment efficiency assessment (prediction of behaviour in drinking water treatment processes). A reliable risk assessment of the relevance of contaminants for the drinking water can only be achieved if all steps have been performed. This stepwise process was applied to two selected unknown compounds, i.e. one that has been detected frequently in surface water during the past few years and another one frequently observed in groundwater. The present report describes the results of this approach and provides recommendations for monitoring and additional research

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
