Seasonal removal efficiency of 16 pharmaceuticals and personal care products was monitored in a wastewater treatment plant in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, over a period of 1 year (total amount of samples, n = 272). The studied compounds included four UV filters, three analgesics/anti-inflammatory drugs and nine anti-hypertensive/cardiovascular drugs.
