Seasonal variation of contaminant concentrations in wastewater treatment works effluents and river waters.
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-02-11)
Results are presented for 170 wastewater treatment works sites (20 per substance in influent, effluent and 36 per substance in river water upstream and downstream of the WwTW discharge) over a period of two years between ...
Determination and Prediction of Zinc Speciation in Estuaries
(American Chemical Society, 2018-11-13)
Lowering of the estuarine Environmental Quality Standard for zinc in the UK to 121 nM reflects rising concern regarding zinc in ecosystems and is driving the need to better understand its fate and behavior and to develop ...
The role of alkalinity in setting water quality metrics: phosphorus standards in United Kingdom rivers.
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-10-01)
UK implementation of the European Union Water Framework Directive (for the 2015-2021 cycle) Ecological Status (ES) classification for river phosphorus is based on the calculation of reference conditions for reactive ...
Development of a chemical source apportionment decision support framework for lake catchment management
© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Increasing pressures on natural resources has led to the adoption of water quality standards to protect ecological and human health. Lakes and reservoirs are particularly vulnerable to pressure on water ...
The effect of wastewater effluent derived ligands on copper and zinc complexation.
The shift toward bioavailability-based standards for metals such as copper and zinc not only improves the ecological relevance of the standard but also introduces significant complexity into assessing compliance. This study ...
Detecting environmental change: how many samples are required?
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-01)
One of the most important functions of environmental monitoring is the detection of change. This can be the delineation of deteriorating circumstances or the identification of the success of remedial measures. The design ...
Developing the OECD 106 fate testing protocol for active pharmaceuticals in soil
(Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-06)
Determination of the forms and stability of phosphorus in wastewater effluent from a variety of treatment processes
Eutrophication of surface waters is a major issue across the planet, with diffuse (agricultural) and point sources (wastewater treatment works, WwTW) being the main inputs. In the UK WwTW effluent discharges are currently ...
Parameterization of pharmaceutical emissions and removal rates for use in UK predictive exposure models: steroid estrogens as a case study.
Newly available prescription data has been used along with census data to develop a localised method for predicting pharmaceutical concentrations in sewage influent and effluent for England, and applied to a case study: ...
