Years ago, a nursing student in Denton Texas tested the water coming out of the sewage treatment plant. It contained birth control hormones and anti depressants.

Nobody did a anything. Can that be filtered out by the water treatment plant downstream?

You won't get a rational answer, just another we hate the EPA thread.

that depends on the regulation. is it going to be a well thought out regulation that actually addresses the problem? or is it going to be another knee jerk feel good regulation that does nothing but create more expense for businesses?
