Please respond either to the whole list or to Beth personally, not to me - thanks, Laurie

Does anyone have good information on estimates of pharma pollution in our ground and surface water that is post-metabolic, or excreted and how much is waste generated?  Of the waste generated, the amount that is from pharmaceutical manufacturing, animal medications (feedlots and agriculture), healthcare facilities, and home disposal?

Thanks very much, Beth
