Abstract

The fate of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in reclaimed water reuse system with integrated membrane process (IMR) was firstly investigated. Results indicated that ARGs, class 1 integrons (intI1) and 16S rRNA gene could be reduced efficiently in the IMR system. The absolute abundance of all detected ARGs in the reuse water after reverse osmosis (RO) filtration of the IMR system was 4.03 × 104 copies/mL, which was about 2-3 orders of magnitude lower than that in the raw influent of the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Maximum removal efficiency of the detected genes was up to 3.8 log removal values. Daily flux of the summation of all selected ARGs in the IMR system decreased sharply to (1.02 ± 1.37) ×1014 copies/day, which was 1-3 orders of magnitude lower than that in the activated sludge system (CAS) system. The strong clustering based on ordination analysis separated the reuse water from other water samples in the WWTPs. Network analysis revealed the existence of potential multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria. The potential multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria, including Clostridium and Defluviicoccus, could be removed effectively by microfiltration and RO filtration. These findings suggested that the IMR system was efficient to remove ARGs and potential multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria in the wastewater reclamation system. Copyright © 2019 Elsevier B.V.
