H ISTORICALLY, wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) have acted as a readily identifiable conduit for the environmental introduction of toxic chemicals from industrial and residential discharges and urban runoff. However, technological improvements in wastewater treatment processes since the enactment of theCleanWaterAct of 1972 have resulted in greatly improved pollutant removal efficiencies. Partitioning of hydrophobic chemicals onto particles and their subsequent removal as sewage sludge is an… CONTINUE READING
