Concentrations of antibiotics in wastewater and receiving waters following water treatment in SW England, June-October, 2015

This dataset comprises of weekly concentrations of fluoroquinolones in wastewater and receiving waters collected in the Avon river catchment South West UK. The following fluoroquinolones were analysed: (±)-ofloxacin, (±)-ofloxacin-N-oxide, (±)-desmethyl-ofloxacin, (±)-lomefloxacin, (±)-moxifloxacin, S,S-moxifloxacin-N-sulfate, R-(+)-besifloxacin, (±)-prulifloxacin, (±)-ulifloxacin, (±)-flumequine and (±)-nadifloxacin; ciprofloxacin, desethylene-ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and nalidixic acid.

The concentrations of (fluoro)quinolones were measured in receiving treated wastewater from 5 wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), which serves 1.5 million people accounting for 75% of inhabitants living in the catchment area in the South West of England.

Provenance & quality

Wastewater influent and effluent were collected for 7 consecutive days running from Wednesday to Tuesday between June and October 2015 from five major WWTPs contributing to one river catchment in the South-West UK.

Measurements of antibiotic were conducted using chiral liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry. See supporting documentation for further details.
