Soils could keep contaminants in wastewater from reaching groundwater, streams

With endocrine-disrupting compounds affecting fish populations in rivers as close as Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna and as far away as Israel’s Jordan, a new research study shows that soils can filter out and break down at least some of these emerging contaminants. The results suggest that water pollution can be diminished by spraying treated wastewater on land rather than discharging it directly into streams, according to researchers.
