Assessment of the pollution concentration of phthalate este (PAEs) affecting the water quality of Ho Tay Lake
The study presents the evaluation results of typical PAEs (6 PAE indicators) of the PAE family in water samples from Ho Tay Lake, Hanoi. The quality of lake water in general and in Hanoi in particular is influenced by many factors. The sources of treatment in lake water such as restaurant businesses and residential areas nearby, can degrade lake water quality. In order to assess water quality, three methods are still implemented: survey method, data collection, sampling and sample analysis method, and risk assessment method. DEP with the largest value in May 2022 and November 2022 is 0.048 and 0.0846 respectively, in the very low to low-risk range.
