Occurrences of micropollutants in water environment has gained increased attention due to their potential impact on water resources and water safety. The possible impact on the ecosystem and the adverse effects on human health not only drew the attention of regulatory agencies and academia around the world, it has also become an important issue of concern to the International Water Association (IWA).
