    Micropollutants in the water cycle

    Micropollutants enter the wastewater treatment plants in the wastewater where the variety of chemical
    compounds cannot be completely removed from the wastewater. Thus, the treated wastewater, which still
    contains micropollutants, enters rivers and lakes where it can be harmful. The booklet provides tips on how
    everybody can help prevent the substances from entering the water cycle.
