Occurrence of Pharmaceutical Compounds in Source and Treated Drinking Water
The occurrence of pharmaceuticals in various surface water sources raises concern over their removal through conventional drinking water treatment processes. A monitoring study of 7 pharmaceutical compounds (acetaminophen, ampicillin, caffeine, naproxen, ofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole, and trimethoprim) in 6 conventional drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs) was performed. Monthly to bimonthly scale sampling was conducted during a one-year study period from raw untreated waters used as drinking water sources, intermediate treatment steps and finished drinking water distributed to consumers.
