Short description: Treated wastewater that is returned to waterways can contain trace organic pollutants that have a negative impact on the environment. In particular, chemicals known as endocrine disrupters, which mimic the effects of natural hormones or otherwise disrupt normal endocrine behaviour, have been found in treated wastewater. According to a recent study, treatment processes could be significantly, and relatively cheaply, improved to remove more of these harmful chemicals.
