The primary concern regarding antibiotics is associated with the development of resistance mechanisms by bacteria and its implications in human health. But their sustained release to the environment along with their bioactive properties also raise concerns about the toxicity of antibiotics to non-target organisms. This study proposes to monitor River Foss and its catchment area for a range of antibiotics.. This study would provide a dataset to begin to compare antibiotic exposure in the UK and study sites in India.
