Can’t we filter our drain-water more to remove pharmaceuticals, hormones, petroleum, etc. before natural water sources are contaminated?

    We do not have the technology and equipment to filter out or neutralize all of those chemical substances. To do that would require tons of research and expensive equipment and more chemicals to counter the chemicals in the water. There is not a simple way to stop the molecules from flowing with the water. We are not even able to detect everything that is in water yet, so we cannot even begin to try to take them all out. Where would we put the harmful chemicals anyway? That is another issue.
