Development of analytical methods for determining PPCPs in biosolids, effluent, and sediment

Project Purpose:
Develop analytical methods to determine selected PPCPs in biosolids and other matrices to assess occurrence, distribution, and potential exposure.

Project Description(s):
The objectives of this research are to: 1) characterize biosolids to understand the matrix, identify matrix components of concern, and characterize the affinity of the matrix for specific analytes ; 2) Develop methods for fluoroquinolone antibiotics; and 3) Develop methods for other analytes that are currently of concern in a variety of matrices to quantify potential exposure.

Project Outcomes:
Peer-reviewed journal article(s) and validation of sentinel species for PPCPs.
