Aim of the study
My thesis is partly integrated into the SchussenAktivplus project. It aims at evaluating the long-term effects of a new installed active charcoal filter stage at the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) Langwiese (AZV Mariatal, Ravensburg) for the ecosystem, with sepcial focus on fish. For this purpose, I will assess the health status of
In addition, I will examine the water quality of the Steinlach, a tributary of the Neckar River, at two sites upstream and downstream of the WWTP Dusslingen (Abwasserverband Steinlach-Wiesaz). For this, effects in rainbow trout that are kept in cages at the respective sites will be determined.
