Anthropogenic trace substances and pathogens in the urban water cycle

The project comprehensively investigated the occurrence of organic trace substances and resistant pathogens in the urban water cycle and possible options for removal. On the one hand, known substances were analytically quantified and unknown trace substances identified. On the other hand, methods using activated carbon and/or ozone for removal were tested at different points of the water cycle. Finally, the awarness of risks in the population was analysed.
