Long description: The paper describes the first fully automated method, based on on-line solid-phase extraction (SPE)-liquid chromatography-electrospray-tandem mass spectrometry, for the determination of drugs of abuse (17 compounds and metabolites belonging to the classes of amphetaminics, cannabinoids, cocainics, opiates, and lysergics) in sewage waters. The main advantages of the method are high sensitivity, selectivity and reliability of results, minimum sample manipulation, full automation, and fairly high throughput. As a validation, the method has been applied to the analysis of various influent and effluent samples from four Spanish sewage treatment plants.
