Plant Effluent and Stormwater Runoff Entering the Columbia River, Columbia River Basin, Washington and Oregon, 2008 10" looks in large part at the residues from pharmaceuticals and personal care New Balance Black And White Trainers

products that come out of the pipes.Those include hormones, antibiotics, flame retardants, anti bacterial chemicals in hand sanitizers and scents in soaps, some of which break down in your body or during wastewater treatment, and others that emerge virtually unchanged.The research provided an inventory about what's out there. The next step in the process is figuring what that means in the environment."If you're going to reduce toxics, you really need to know where they're coming from first," she said. "And so we really didn't know a lot about pharmaceuticals and personal care products New Balance 411 Womens and where they're coming from. So we looked at two different pathways, New Balance 711v2

which were wastewater treatment plant effluent and storm water."I call them pathways because they're not the sources of the contaminants. We are the sources of the contaminants. They're just the ways they get to the river."Many people generally don't think about their role in the wastewater stream, Morace said."Even one of my friends who I went to college with, and is very intelligent, she said, 'I don't put anything down the drain,' " she recalled. "I said, 'Do you wash your hands? Do you wash your hair? Do you put lotion on? Do you wash your dishes?' And she's like, 'Oh.' I said, 'Do you take any medications?'"All of that stuff goes down the drain, but we really don't think about it."Because of a growing interest since the report came out, Morace and her colleagues have gone from talking about the findings to bureaucrats and other scientists to speaking to citizens and community groups."It's funny how it goes, because for the past several years I've talked about the same work," she said. "And a lot of it was at scientific conferences, other agencies, just letting them know, policy makers, that sort of thing."And just in the last year it's gotten more into these watershed groups and other things."Making presentations at public gatherings is something that she never considered growing up."I never thought that I would; in high school I was scared to death of speaking in public. And my dad made me take a public speaking class, and I was like 'why'd he do this to me?" she said, then laughed. "Now I'm glad he did."Good thing, too, because raising public awareness is the first line of defense in fighting wastewater contaminants, Morace said.Retrofitting treatment plants to remove or neutralize the chemicals would be technologically difficult and prohibitively expensive, she said, not to mention never ending."By the time you do that, you're probably going to have a whole new bunch of compounds you're going to have to deal with," Morace said. "And so we really feel like the stronger reduction efforts are going to come from changing the inputs, working on pollution prevention."And I think that's kind of the main story that came out of the report that I worked on was just to get people to realize that what you do affects the ecosystem that you live in."
