Controlling the Release of Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCP's) into the Canadian Environment

In 2  2 Environment Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Environment   (MOE), and the City of Toronto embarked on a large-scale   collaborative wastewater research study to generate information for   development of risk management strategies to control the release of   pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) into the Canadian   environment.     This study included several facets: development of analytical   methods to detect PPCPs in wastewater and sludge; surveys of PPCPs   in wastewater treatment plant influents, effluents, and sludges;   comparison of conventional activated sludge (CAS) and innovative   wastewater treatment processes for PPCP removal from wastewater; and   controlled bench-scale studies.    The project took place in the Thames River and Grand River   watersheds, and near a large wastewater treatment plant discharging   into Lake Ontario.    (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern); (pharmaceutical);   (pharmaceuticals); (personal care products); (PPCP's); (personal   care product); (PPCPs); (PPCP); (wastewater); (human health); (toxic   organic); (toxic organics)
