Abstract

An integrated model was developed, calibrated and validated to predict the fate of micropollutants (MPs) and the human health risks that these substances pose when wastewater is reused for agricultural purposes. Results showed that pharmaceuticals (e.g., the anti-inflammatory drug paracetamol) can form during in-sewer transit from other metabolites and posing a potential risk (Hazard Quotient for infants = 10-2) if wastewater is not treated before irrigation. The model can represent a relevant decision-support tool to plan barriers for reducing the risk associated to MPs.
