Occurrence and removal efficiencies of 13 pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) as well as BOD(5), TSS and NH(4)(+) were evaluated for the first time in thirteen onsite household secondary wastewater treatment systems, including two compact biofilters followed by Filtralite-P filter units, two biological sand filters, five horizontal subsurface flow and four vertical flow constructed wetlands. As expected, all systems removed TSS and BOD(5) efficiently (>95% removal). The PPCP… CONTINUE READING
