Abstract/Summary

This report presents the activities undertaken by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH-Wallingford) as part of the EcoEPI Follow-up contract. The role of CEH was to quantify the influence of wastewater inputs based on a national dataset of sewage treatment works (STWs) location and characteristics. Within this project, there were 307 catchments selected across England and Wales, for each catchment a weighted population contribution to the effluent load was derived and existing LF2K-WQX concentration predictions for steroid oestrogens included.
