Dataset for Fate of Pharmaceuticals in a Treated Wastewater Spray-Irrigation System: From Wastewater to Groundwater

Land application of wastewater effluent on forested and agricultural fields is becoming a common practice that recycle nutrients in wastewater and makes use of soil as biogeochemical filter for wastewater. However pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) that persist in treated wastewater effluent pose potential environmental and human health concerns in such wastewater reuse systems. Despite the widespread reuse of wastewater in this manner, the long-term sustainability of spray irrigation and the impact on underlying groundwater has received limited scientific attention. we collected water samples through a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and from 13 groundwater monitoring wells at a spray-irrigation field where all of the wastewater has been spray-irrigated since the early 1980s. Samples were collected for a 14-month study period (October 2016 through December 2017).
