New study to estimate concentrations of pharmaceuticals in drinking water

Friday, June 24th, 2011

In response to media headlines about the presence of
pharmaceuticals in drinking water, professors from the University of
Virginia School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a
website, “<>V-PharmaCalc,”
that allows Virginians to view estimated concentrations of various
prescription and generic drugs present in their local wastewater –
before it is treated and released to the environment. – from press release

According to Ph.D., P.E., LEED Green Associate, for each wastewater treatment plant, the address was obtained from a listing of treatment plants provided by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ).  From that list, the latitude/longitude of each treatment plant was then determined.

When a user enters their zipcode, there is a default latitude/longitude for
that zipcode (as evidenced if you go to Google Maps and just enter a zip
code, it defaults to a certain point).  From that specific zip code
latitude/longitude coordinate, the website then links to the wastewater
treatment plant that is closest.
