U.S. EPA Water Research September Webinar
Pharmaceutical Residues in Municipal Wastewater
There are thousands of pharmaceuticals in use today. Some pharmaceuticals have been found in water and have raised concerns about the potential risks they pose to both humans and our ecosystems. These pharmaceuticals tend to make their way in to our waters primarily through excretion of active drugs directly from patients and subsequent incomplete removal of those pharmaceuticals from our wastewater during wastewater treatment. This webinar will describe our estimates of potential risks to people as well as aquatic life by combining aquatic concentration information with available dose-response data. This analysis includes data from our recent study of pharmaceutical concentrations in effluent samples from 50 very large municipal wastewater plants located across the United States. Contributors: Mitch Kostich, Angela Batt, Susan Glassmeyer, and Jim Lazorchak.
