Pharmaceuticals in the Environment

What are the impacts of drugs and other personal care products on freshwater organisms? These chemicals are released from our sewage treatment plants and agricultural practices but we do not know the consequences of their presence in the environment. For this project a student would examine some of the potential impacts of these chemicals on freshwater organisms.

This project is located at the School of Freshwater Science: 600 E. Greenfield Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53204
