1.    Does the EPA know the drug metabolites that are formed in the human 
body and excreted and will the methods detect these metabolites?

2.    Does the EPA know the degradation products that are formed in the 
sewage and will the methods detect these degradates?

3.    Can the EPA methods extract chemicals and their degradations products 
(all inclusive) that are bound to organic matter from the sewage and how was 
this proved?

·         Do you know the Koc (organic carbon partition coefficient) value 
of the residues?

4.    Can the EPA methods extract chemicals and degradation products (all 
inclusive) that are lipid soluble and if so how was this proved?

·         Do you know the Kow (octanol water partition coefficient) value of 
the residues?

5.    It is known the residues that have a high Koc and Kow will persist in 
the environment and be taken up by crops and animals do you have studies on 
this?

6.    Do you have any studies or know of studies on pharmaceuticals waste in 
wastewater and sewage sludge causing resistant strains of bugs?
