A recent study shows that most of the drug residues found in wastewater originate from domestic households rather than health care institutions, as originally thought.
Drugs and pharmaceuticals are listed as emerging contaminants that pose a concern in terms of drinking water contamination. Now a recent study conducted in Germany shows that most of the drug residues found in wastewater originate from domestic households rather than health care institutions such as nursing facilities and hospitals, whose output is considered insignificant by comparison.Scientists from Leuphana University analyzed data of drug co...

Recent study has revealed that pollutants in stormwater runoff from parking lots, roads and paved surfaces is killing adult salmon in West Coast urban streams.
A recent study has revealed that pollutants in stormwater runoff from parking lots, roads and other paved surfaces is killing adult salmon in West Coast urban streams. The study, which was recently published in the Journal of Applied Ecology, is the first to show how salmon mortality is linked to urban stormwater, and suggests that by filtering urban runoff using a simple inexpensive filtration system consisting of sand and soil filter media, the...

A recently published analysis provides options for management of runoff, storm water and floods that can be implemented by decision-makers to manage water quality.
A recently published analysis of how land cover and climate change will affect watersheds across the United States, provides options for the management of runoff, storm water and floods that can be implemented by decision-makers to manage water quality.The study, which was recently published in the Journal of Geophysical Research Biogeosciences, was conducted by scientists from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who hope that the models and...

The effluent released from water treatment plants is very often a source of a large number of contaminants found in rivers today.
Wastewater treatment facilities are supposed to remove pollutants from water fouled by human activities, yet the effluent released from water treatment plants is very often a source of a large number of contaminants found in rivers, according to a study recently published in the scientific journal, Freshwater Biology.Ibon Aristi, a researcher in the department of Plant Biology & Ecology at The University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain, ...

Scientists discover the mechanism in the human brain that controls body temperature and hydration.
Scientists discover the mechanism in the human brain that controls body temperature and hydration.A team of researchers from Duke University and the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) have unraveled how the human brain is able to determine when our bodies are becoming dehydrated and how it prevents the body from dehydrating by identifying a key protein that is thought to control body temperature and hydration.Thei...

While many people are aware of devastating impact of pesticides, there is far less awareness regarding highly toxic insecticides consisting largely of neonics.
While many people are aware of the devastating impact that pesticides are having on bees and other insect pollinators, there is far less awareness regarding the use of highly toxic insecticides (a form of pesticide) consisting largely of neonics, that are particularly persistent in the environment and poses perhaps the greatest threat to our freshwater systems and all forms of life that depend on these water bodies for their survival.A report tit...
