Water Luncheon Seminar

Can Sunlight Attenuate Pharmaceutical Compunds Downstream of Wastewater Treatment Plants?

Allison MacKay, Professor, The Ohio State University: https://ceg.osu.edu/people/mackay.49

WHEN:  April 13, 2016;  11:30 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE: Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, Heffner Building, Columbus, OH (map)


Pharmaceuticals and other compounds of wastewater origin have received attention in aquatic systems because they are known to be bioactive molecules.  Assessments of the risk posed by these compounds must consider both downstream exposure concentrations, as well as organism responses.  The purpose of this work was to examine the role of sunlight in attenuating downstream pharmaceutical compound concentrations.

Water Environment Research Foundation

The International Stormwater Best Management Practices Database

WHAT:  The Water Environment Research Foundation, the National Corn Growers Association, and the United Soybean Board recently completed the third phase in the expansion of the Database, which compiles studies and analyses of BMP performance, now includes agricultural BMPs.


International Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) Database

The long-term goal of the Agricultural BMP Database is to help users select better BMP systems for their operations and to improve BMP design and implementation. The database is intended for agricultural advisors, planners, consultants, and producers.  In this third phase, the project team strengthened the initially populated database and prepared a summary report to capture technical findings for row crops — particularly corn and soybean — from the database to date. Data captured in the summary includes 44 peer-reviewed professional publications that characterize pollutant loading and concentrations in 192 fields or study plots.  Specific stormwater summaries are included in the report.
