We studied perfluorochemicals (PFCs) in the influents and effluents of two municipal wastewater treatment plants (MWWTPs) and in the effluents of an industrial wastewater treatment plant (IWWTP). The impact of IWWTP effluents on the receiving rivers (the Nanmen and Keya Rivers) was evaluated by measuring PFC levels in the surface waters of both rivers and the sediments of the Nanmen River. Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) (293 ng L(-1)) and perfluorohexanoic acid (406 ng L(-1)) were identified… CONTINUE READING
