Abstract

As water demands increase, so does the need to use more treated wastewater to augment nonpotable and potable water supplies. The goal of this research was to develop approaches combining bioassays with chemical analysis to study removal of EDCs and to improve the current understanding of removal of EDCs and endocrine disrupting activities during water reclamation processes.

Originally funded as WERF project 01-HHE-20T.
