Unfortunately, yes. According to an investigation by the Associated Press, “a vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans.”
When someone takes a prescription drug, not all of the drug is metabolized. Some of the drug passes through the body and ends up in the wastewater in the sewage system. Treatment plants don’t get rid of all of the drug residue, and so drugs end up in our water supply after being released into rivers after going through the treatment plant, or by seeping into the groundwater from septic systems.
