Wastewater analysis and drugs — a European multi-city study (Perspectives on drugs)


The findings of the largest European project to date in the emerging science of wastewater analysis are taken up in this ‘Perspective on drugs’. The project in question analysed wastewater in 82 European cities and towns to explore the drug-taking habits of those who live in them. The results provide a valuable snapshot of the drug flow through the cities involved, revealing marked geographical variations.

The Perspectives on Drugs (PODs) series offers designed-for-the-web interactive analyses, providing insights into a selection of important issues.
