Pharmaceuticals in drinking water sources (DWSs) have raised significant concerns for their persistent input and potential human health risks. Currently, little is known about the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in DWSs in China. In this study, a survey for multi-class pharmaceuticals in DWSs of five major river watersheds in China was conducted from 2012 to 2013. Samples were collected from 25 sampling sites in rivers and reservoirs. 135 pharmaceuticals were analyzed using solid-phase extraction… Expand

Micropollutants in drinking water from source to tap - Method development and application of a multiresidue screening method.
TLDR
The composition of micropollutants changed along the water path, to a higher fraction of food additives and PFASs, and median treatment efficiency in the full-scale DWTP was close to 0%, but with high variability for individual compounds. Expand
