Abstract

This project brought together a team of experts in the fields of environmental engineering, analytical chemistry and hydrogeology, and biological assay analysis to evaluate the occurrence and fate of estrogenic compounds and the estrogenicity of biosolids derived from wastewater treatment. The primary objective of the study was to provide key baseline information concerning the estrogenicity (measured with in vitro bioassays) and concentrations of individual estrogenic compounds and other trace organic chemicals through common wastewater treatment processes. This research is important for developing information critical to the assessment of the potential risks associated with biosolids land application. Published by WERF. 178 pages.
