Detail

The data collated in this study was used in a separate risk assessment of the impacts of steroid discharges, which influenced site selection for an ‘endocrine disruption demonstration programme’. The demonstration programme will evaluate the efficacy of existing and improved treatment processes at reducing steroid concentrations and endocrine disrupting effects in effluents.
