Concentration and risk of pharmaceuticals in freshwater systems are related to the population density and the livestock units in Iberian Rivers.

Abstract

Considerable amounts of pharmaceuticals are used in human and veterinary medicine, which are not efficiently removed during wastewater and slurries treatment and subsequently entering continuously into freshwater systems. The intrinsic biological activity of these non-regulated pollutants turns their presence in the aquatic environment into an ecological… (More)
