Fate and Distribution of Determinants of Antimicrobial Resistance in Lateral Flow Sand Filters Used for Treatment of Domestic Wastewater

  01 February 2021

Residuals of antimicrobial products from anthropogenic uses can create a selective environment in domestic wastewater treatment systems and receiving environments and contribute to the spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). On-site wastewater treatment systems are widely used for domestic wastewater management in rural and remote regions, but the fate of determinants of AMR in these types of environments has received little attention. In this study, the mechanisms responsible for the attenuation of determinants of AMR in lateral flow sand filters were explored using a combination of lab, field and modeling investigations.
