GIS-based landscape analysis to identify sources of endocrine disrupting chemicals

De facto wastewater reuse from Wastewater Treatment Facilities (WWTF) has the potential to contribute unregulated Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals. To visualize the typical contributions of treated effluent into Shenandoah River watershed streams, an ArcGIS model of WWTFs, NHDPlus Version 2 (USGS and EPA 2012) stream networks, and USGS Streamgages across the Shenandoah River watershed was developed.
