Scientific studies show sometimes alarming levels of human medicines in U.S waterways. Sewage treatment systems cannot remove these medicines from wastewater, and they end up in lakes and rivers, where they can adversely affect aquatic animals. For this reason, medications should not be flushed down the drain or thrown away.
