Drugs in the Water Supply

According to an AP investigation, US pharma companies have released at least 1000 tonnes of pharmaceuticals into American waterways. This putative contamination of the drinking water supply has been consistently overlooked by the Federal government, their report says.

Interestingly, this drugs in the water supply is a topic I discussed at least a decade ago in the original ChemWeb Catalyst column (now available on Sciencebase.com) and one that was also in the news in India not too long ago: Indian Stream A Cocktail Of Drugs. The exact same news was also discussed back in January on the thdblog: Pharmaceutical Waste Dumped at Record Levels.
