Environmental risk assessment of household chemicals at the catchment scale requires an estimate of the load at individual Sewage Treatment Works (STWs). This can be achieved based upon population served and market consumption data. Although the population served is difficult to obtain, this paper shows that reasonable estimates can be made using readily available spatially referenced data. A new method is developed using STW data from the Exe and the Aire and Calder catchments and validated… CONTINUE READING
