Survey of Estrogenic Activity in the Danish Aquatic Environment


The survey of estrogens in the aquatic environment and waste water effluents in Denmark indicate that there is no widespread impact from estrogens in freshwater environment. However, in effluents of certain types of waste water treatment plants, and in small water courses downstream of discharges of poorly treated wastewater, or in case of overflow episodes, the resulting environmental concentration will probably exceed the effect levels known from the scientific literature.
