Contaminants of emerging concern, such as drugs, antidepressants and PFAS, have been found in wastewater and streams in northwest Ohio, but variations in their locations over time haven’t been well studied yet. Establishing these patterns would help managers understand the chemicals’ impacts on the environment and potentially identify hotspots for treatment.
Dr. Kevin McCluney at
Bowling Green State University is measuring contaminants in samples of wastewater influent and effluent from multiple treatment plants around northwest Ohio, along with samples from receiving streams and aquatic organisms, over time.
The webinar is free, but registration is required to receive log-in information.
