All Streams Have Pesticides?
Latest report from Science of the Total Environment shows that even in the highly-regulated EU, 13 of 29 river water samples showed elevated levels of pesticides and pharmaceuticals.
Circle of Blue says:
"New chemicals and medicines are being developed, then leaching into waterways, faster than researchers can study them."
Tap Score Says says:
"If European rivers show high concentrations of pesticides and pharmaceuticals I worry US water-bodies (Midwest, in particular) are likely to be even more exposed."
