Research tidbit: New study reveals widespread and seasonally variable antibiotic concentrations in rural streams and drinking water wells

In both human and veterinary medicine, antibiotics are used to combat infections, and the extent of antibiotic use is on the rise. Antibiotics consumed by humans and animals can end up in the environment through a number of different pathways including wastewater treatment facility effluent, septic leaching, and runoff. Once in the environment, antibiotics can … Continue reading Research tidbit: New study reveals widespread and seasonally variable antibiotic concentrations in rural streams and drinking water wells

ECR Hydrology Research Tidbit: Freshwater? Deep in the Sea?

Much like groundwater discharges into rivers and streams, groundwater also discharges into the ocean. The discharge of terrestrially based water to the coastal ocean is called submarine groundwater discharge, or SGD, and has been observed globally, particularly in nearshore environments. SGD impacts both terrestrial and marine environments. It discharges terrestrially-based water that is frequently high … Continue reading ECR Hydrology Research Tidbit: Freshwater? Deep in the Sea?
