The fate of estrogenic hormones in an engineered treatment wetland with dense macrophytes



The fate of estrogenic hormones in an engineered treatment wetland with dense macrophytes



Water Environment Research 77(1): 24-31



Recently, the estrogenic hormones 17 beta -estradiol (E2) and 17 alpha -ethinyl estradiol (EE2) have been detected in municipal wastewater effluent and surface waters at concentrations sufficient to cause feminization of male fish. To evaluate the fate of steroid hormones in an engineered treatment wetland, lithium chloride, E2, and EE2 were added to a treatment wetland test cell.
